fug I would take some of those kids in the AT&T commercials over D'Antoni. At least they would probably understand you don't ask a 17 year Vet to play just about every minute of every game for two weeks straight....

I have no doubts that Kobe will be back, the question is how long will it take....

Lol so funny story...

After Kobe got hurt Thomas Davis of all people told Kobe to "stop faking it". I was watching the game so I kinda took offense to that and said something to him. I noticed after the report of Kobe tearing his Achilles, he had deleted his tweet. So I tweeted him, "Oh, what happened to your little tweet about Kobe faking it?" and he proceeded to call me an idiot. LOL. Obviously going to continue to root for him on the field, but he's a douche.

*nb4 the other Panther fans jump on me*

Sucks for Kobe, but works out great for Lakers fans. When LeBron is hoisting up another championship this year, the excuse will be that it was because Kobe got hurt.

Yep, they were going to get demolished in the first round regardless of having Kobe or not. At least now they have an excuse queued up. Sad day for the NBA and NBA fans though, terrible way to end a legendary career. Even if he is able to return to the court, he will be a shell.

From Kobe's Facebook this morning:

This is such BS! All the training and sacrifice just flew out the window with one step that I’ve done millions of times! The frustration is unbearable. The anger is rage. Why the hell did this happen ?!? Makes no damn sense. Now I’m supposed to come back from this and be the same player Or better at 35?!? How in the world am I supposed to do that??

I have NO CLUE. Do I have the consistent will to overcome this thing? Maybe I should break out the rocking chair and reminisce on the career that was. Maybe this is how my book ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me…Then again maybe not!

It’s 3:30am, my foot feels like dead weight, my head is spinning from the pain meds and I’m wide awake. Forgive my Venting but what’s the purpose of social media if I won’t bring it to you Real No Image?? Feels good to vent, let it out. To feel as if THIS is the WORST thing EVER! Because After ALL the venting, a real perspective sets in.

There are far greater issues/challenges in the world then a torn achilles. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, find the silver lining and get to work with the same belief, same drive and same conviction as ever.

One day, the beginning of a new career journey will commence. Today is NOT that day.

“If you see me in a fight with a bear, prey for the bear”. Ive always loved that quote. Thats “mamba mentality” we don’t quit, we don’t cower, we don’t run. We endure and conquer.

I know it’s a long post but I’m Facebook Venting LOL. Maybe now I can actually get some sleep and be excited for surgery tomorrow. First step of a new challenge.

Guess I will be Coach Vino the rest of this season. I have faith in my teammates. They will come thru.

Thank you for all your prayers and support. Much Love Always.

Mamba Out

I blame this on Jim Buss. He is the biggest idiot and I am worried he will run his dads franchise to the ground. He's so stupid to hire like Brown. He's then even dumber to hire Dantoni thinking old players can play run and gun. The roster makeup is a half court scoring strong team in the paint on defense with Howard. He let his ego interfere with getting Phil Jackson. I hope he gets hit with a bus and Jeannie takes over. Laker fans need to pray Jeannie and Phil have babies and make future Zen masters to coach the Lakers for the future.
