He's still Kobe Bean Bryant.
Never doubt this man. He's only going to be out for six weeks. One thing we've learned about Kobe over the years is that he has a hunger that is unmatched. He came back and turned the ball over a bunch of times but still showed flashes of his former self. He's 35 not 40; we still think he has a little something left in the tank. But for him to survive the next two seasons, the Lakers have to get him some help. Who would it be? Carmelo? Kevin Love? Russell Westbrook? Dwight wasn't man enough to withstand L.A. We think the Lakers have a great track record in building championship teams, they'll figure something out. -Angel Diaz
