Kobe Bryant’s Physical Trainer Speaks On His Pain Threshold

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Kobe Bryant’s ability to focus and play through pain is the thing of legends. He has made a career out of fighting through injuries to keep producing.

– Think You Know Everything About Kobe Bryant? Take The Ultimate Kobe Quiz! –

No one knows about Kobe’s unreal pain tolerance more than physical trainer Judy Seto. Speaking with Sports Illustrated’s Chris Ballard, she revealed just how high Kobe’s pain threshold is:

It’s the highest that I’ve ever seen. He channels his focus so well in terms of just the task at hand. But also when he’s had pain, he can block that out.

Seto elaborated on Kobe making the free throws after he tore his Achilles as a specific example of Kobe blocking out everything:

I think a good example is when he tore his Achilles, he made those free throws. He blocked it out and focused [...] I think that’s what makes him who he is. I mean, he can take that and just block everything else out, including pain. Like I said, he’s not a reckless person. He wasn’t going to cause more damage by going out there and shooting his free throws. It was fine for him to do that. It’s just amazing.

The stories of Kobe’s work ethic and pain tolerance are nothing new. Players and fans alike have been able to witness Kobe do heroic things despite injuries.

As Kobe prepares for his final run in the NBA, he will be in for a massive fight to get these Lakers into contention, but Kobe will surely be up to the challenge.

    The really impressive pain threshold can be seen in the women that have ‘dated’ Kobe.

    • DKWTTY

      How unsurprising to see you comment first. Yeah that whore in Colorado took about 3 different dicks in the span of 2 days…including Kobe’s massive one, according to her bragging stories she told her friends. Doesn’t sound like a victim to me. That whore got good D and got paid. Why you so mad troll? Oh I see! You’re jealous! Sorry Kobe doesn’t swing your way.

      • Zach

        Why are you so defensive little guy??? BTW, don’t cry you might screw up your keyboard.

        • DKWTTY

          Why are you so obsessed with Kobe? Don’t fap too much over him and ruin your mothers keyboard little boy. Try leaving your basement sometime, the sun will do wonders for you.

          • L4K3R5F4N

            Maybe his parents locked him in the basement. I wouldn’t be surprised though, they probably hate him too.

        • tony

          People like you give Haters bad name.. Get a life kid

      • Jim

        Don’t feed the trolls.

      • Realistic Laker Fan

        Pause, unless you’re a women.

        • DKWTTY

          *Woman and yes I am.

          • Chris

            are you sure? sounds like a fag to me… and even if you’re a woman… I’m pretty sure… a lady boy looks a lot better than you. lol….

      • david

        you sound like a female defending her man’s honor or more likely your behavior is similar to an indigenous village idiot guarding his idolatrous god.

        • DKWTTY

          You sound like a troll that lives under a bridge. Stop defending yourself under different names loser.

          • David

            WASSUP VDOGG

          • David

            Do you have a KB blow up mannequin?

          • DKWTTY

            No, why? You looking for one? Sorry can’t have the blow up version of Kobe either. BYE LOSER!

          • CLIPPERSRUNLA

            Someone sounds frustrated by a loser laker team. Lol

          • LakersLifer

            Someone sounds frustrated with their lack of acceptance in society.

            Change your name to Trolls RUIN LA !

          • LakersLifer

            HAHAHA HAHAHA.

            Love your response to that troll boy.
            You got him good.
            He’s obviously a women hater. I guess constant rejection can do that to you.

        • Ryan

          The adjectives you used are somewhat confusing. “indigenous village idiot?” Did you mean, an inherent or natural village idiot? originating from village idiot?
          How about “idolatrous god?” Did you mean, worshiping idols god? Doesn’t make sense at all.

          • vdogg

            give her a break. she’s desperately trying to sound intelligent for once.

          • David

            idols are false gods Ryan, get a clue. All three is correct adjectives Rjyan but mine sounds more descriptive, if this confuses you then you better go back to college.

          • vdogg

            “all three is correct adjectives..”.. seriously? you might want to head back to grammar school.

          • DKWTTY

            lol The troll just googled some shit and copied and pasted to try and sound smart/gain likes, never-mind the fact that it doesn’t make sense. Do trolls ever make sense?

      • Sly

        I think dick Knut is lost with,tts wit him self .(dkwtts) that’s what I read .

        • DKWTTY

          Are you high or retarded?

          • LakersLifer

            Most Likely its both.

      • David

        I would bet you’re fantasizing that you were the one on her back instead of that blond, admit it Kobe idol worshippers will do anything for their god.

        • DKWTTY

          Sounds like your fantasy. How often do you dream about it David/Zach/Clippersrunla? That whore enjoyed that “rape” and probably still fantasies about it. YOU JEALOUS?

    • L4K3R5F4N

      Fuck off, Zach! Nobody likes you.

    • lakerfan

      Why does this guy always appear in the comments saying something negative about Kobe or the Lakers? must be a “Clippers fan”.

      • independentbynature

        Actually.he’s a Celtics fan.And he has a big time man crush on Brad Pitt.

        • ad27

          I like LeBron but Kobe is good too

      • LakersLifer

        i bet IT’S not even a clippers fan. I feel bad for real Clippers fans that get a bad name cause of this degenerate.

    • Just saying

      hate all you want, man. 100 years from now, Kobe’s statue will still be at the Staples Center, his children’s children will still be enjoying the financial security of his company and his name will be remembered as one of the greatest who played the game of basketball. And your descendants would say, “how come our grandparents didn’t do as well?” What I’m saying is, instead of hating on people you don’t even know, do something that would make your children proud of you. The best way to get back at people you don’t like is to do better than them.

      • Zach

        Kobe’s statue will be made from bricks and he’s a rapist. Root for that scumbag if you like, but I have higher standards. His children’s children will ask, “Why did he hire a legal team of 15 people if he was innocent???”

        • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

          Or they might ask, “If he raped her, why did she have sex with someone else before going to the hospital?”

          • Zach

            And they’ll have to explain she was traumatized. Hopefully by that point rapists won’t be so idolized in society.

          • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

            No one idolizes rapists, but few actions are worse than falsely accusing someone of rape.

          • vdogg

            no rape victim brags about having had sex with the accused. end of story.

          • Zach

            Wrong, most Laker fans idolize a known rapist. There can be no doubt at all Bryant is a rapist, it’s simply a fact.

    • Al Haldie

      That’s your problem, I have been trying to figure you out you love KOBE and he will not have anything too do with you, so now your a stocker, I new it I new it I new it…

    • Knowitall Jamal

      Indeed

    • Zach’s Mother

      Hm.. u may choke on my dick. You probably are gonna need a high pain threshold cuz u’re getting raped by the comments in the ass HARD lol.

    • Tang

      I can tell do don’t have a freaking life. You poor pitiful creature…

    • DrJayMixwell

      You can be the ripest, sweetest orange in the world. And there’s still gonna be someone that hates oranges. #hatersgonhate

    • LakersLifer

      Sounds like your envious of the pleasurable pain these women got to enjoy.
      Whack or whatever your name is, jump on your trolly and be gone little troll boy.

  • Dana Douglas

    It has been wonderful watching Kobe grow from a brash kid to a mature adult with legendary focus, will and work ethic. He didn’t have all that when he entered the league, though looking back you can see the beginnings of it in hindsight. Very impressive journey for this boy-to-man. As an endurance athlete there’s a t.s. elliot quote I have always lived by. Paraphrased, it is this: “Only those who dare to go too far can ever know how far they can go.” Kobe is one of the few who knows how far he can go. And it is very far, indeed.

    Bravo, Mr. Bryant. You know yourself, a very rare and precious thing in this world.

  • johnny

    I love the Jerry Buss lakers. Stop telling how I should love Kobe’s superman bullshit. It’s a team sport and Kobe shits all over that statment!

  • Vlad

    After taking a moment out of my life, to witness these amazing comments, i can only conclude on one thing.

    Almost all of you are people that don’t understand this sport, or sports in general, it doesn’t matter if you’re a pathetic geek locked up in your uncle’s bedroom, or a successful lawyer, you don’t understand it.

    This article is about an amazing competitor and human being, granted at times, that has made questionable decisions but then again, name a single person, not just superstar that hasn’t.

    You’re probably just going to bitch and whine and troll, but at the end of the day, no matter what life you have, there is no way you can’t respect Kobe as a player, not as a Laker. If you don’t / cant, then your opinion isn’t and will never be relevant, because you can’t respect greatness.

    • Zach

      ‘Questionable decsions’? Like raping a young woman while she fought back for her life? Like ratting out a supposed friend and teammate to the cops? Attacking a man in church for simply taking his picture? I could go on, but since you’re blindly in love with this POS I won’t bother. Garbage.

      • DKWTTY

        SHE LOVED THAT RAPE SO MUCH SHE BRAGGED TO HER FRIENDS! Once you go black you never go back. You got cock envy little man? She probably still calling out his name when her slut ass is fucking a different man every night. It’s okay lil dick boy.

        • Zach

          You sound like a major fan of big fleshpoles, too funny. We both know you’d drop to your knees for rape boy in a second. You can cry and wet yourself all day boy, but you still root for a rapist and you’re still a lonely virgin. Sad.

          • DKWTTY

            You mean drop to my knees to the same way that lil Becky did for Kobe? Oh no wait, he bent her over a chair while she enjoyed every single second of it.

            As a woman I’m ashamed that another woman falsely accused a black man of rape but that’s a long standing tradition with white women. What’s even worse is you perpetuating that stereotype from something that happened 10 years ago but that’s also a long standing tradition with white men. Are you a member of the Klan?

            Your entire existence is sad. How many consecutive days are you going to keep repeating this same boring troll line? It’s clear who the virgin is and it’s your basement dwelling, Call of Duty playing, pizza eating, Kobe obsession having, fat, ugly lonely ass. Hey you can always order a bride online or get a hooker.

            Don’t say this was too long to read because you have no life and nothing else to do. Tell your mommy to get your a bottle, you’re cranky.

          • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

            Excuse me, but I am a white man, and I do not perpetuate stereotypes from things that happened 10 years ago, and I am not a member of the Klan.

          • David

            Forgive her, she is an African American woman who is frustrated by what she saw as white women stealing black studs such as her idol KB.

          • LakersLifer

            SHUT THE FUCK UP INSECURE LITTLE TROLL.

            YOUR NOT INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO HAVE ANYONE FALL FOR YOUR INSTIGATION.

            IM NOT BLACK OR WHITE BUT IM DEFINITELY OFFENDED BY YOUR CONSTANT RACIAL REMARKS.

            GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE, YOU COWARDLY PIECE OF IGNORANT SHIT!

          • LakersLifer

            Even though I didnt make those comments I apologize to you.

            You my friend, IM SURE, are NOT, that white person, sadly there are still some out there with a certain mentality.

            Thats not cool to group people one way or another based on color.

            We are all intelligent fans brought together by the love of the game and can admire a persons accolades and relish in a teams victories, lets not allow a troll to divide our LAKER FAMILY!

          • David

            I am not the one who bring up the constant racial remarks and accusations but I can respond at will.
            Come and shut me up big man…I have it ready for ya.

          • David

            It’s ghetto behavior like you which I respond in kind.

          • DKWTTY

            lol. That’s wonderful to know. Thanks for not being like some others.

  • jj

    Kobe is going to be in a lifetime of pain after he retires.

    • John

      How so? He has his own company now, and will be retiring as one of the greatest to ever play basketball.

  • Jay

    A torn achilles doesn’t really hurt, only when you put pressure on it or bend your ankle… I walked out of the gym room… drove my self to urgent care with the driver foot being the one torn. It hurt when I pushed on the pedal but that’s it.

    wth is a physical trainer?! Physical Therapist and/or Personal trainer… Judy Seto is a Physical Therapist (PT).

    Zach likes the clippers

    • Kishan

      OH I SEE… so he’s a little child then……

  • vdogg

    laker haters one minute :

    ‘who cares that the lakers won the title in ’09 and ’10? you idiotic laker fans are history majors. all that matters is NOW.’

    laker haters the next minute :

    ‘let’s never forget kobe’s trumped-up rape charge from ’03 and the fact that he asked to be traded in ’07.’

    WAY TO STAY CONSISTENT, GUYS.

  • vdogg

    typical laker hater comment :

    ‘the lakers suck balls now and are not even close to being worth talking about! that being said, i will be here all day, everyday talking about them.’

    WAY TO STAY CONSISTENT, GUYS.

  • hart_norman@yahoo.com

    Kobe I am Norm, from Philly, I live in Vegas now, basketball wise, you ,Magic, Doc, & MJ are truly the best that I have ever seen, I’m 51. There have been good players in that time, but to me you are SIMPLY THE BEST♡♡♡♡

    • Zach

      He doesn’t actually run this site you know, it just seems like it sometimes.

  • David

    IT WILL BE EPIC WHEN THE IDOL GOES DOWN (there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth), not because I hate the Lakers but because I dislike the idol (get a clue) worshippers and that includes the FO…and besides whether the idol kB is healthy/injured or not makes no difference as far as the playoffs or a championship is concerned.

    • Zach

      It’s not even epic at this point, kind of expected. And you’re right, they’re not winning 40 games whether he plays or not. Easily the most overrated and unlikeable athlete in sports history.

      • david

        yes likely but epic in terms of the idol worshippers expectations and then weeping and whining, it will be interesting to witness. It is why I am wishing/anticipating KB starts the full training camp soon.

        • Zach

          I’m looking forward to his classic 7 for 29 shooting nights while the rest of the team silently hates his guts. A true albatross.

  • Zach

    Bryant’s a rapist.

  • Kishan

    oh remember those days when clippers couldnt even make the playoffs all those years and they still haven’t made up for it …..oh those days were nice

  • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

    Interesting read (if you can read) – http://www.landofbasketball .com/statistics/worst_seasons.htm

    Of the 50 worst NBA teams of all time, the Clippers show up SEVEN times! The Lakers? None.

  • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

    On the other hand – http://www.landofbasketball .com/statistics/best_seasons.htm

    Of the 50 best NBA teams of all time, the Lakers show up NINE times! The Clippers? None.

  • Bryan

    The present had a past and the future is built on that. You can be great now then suck tomorrow, that’s why there is history– it’s a record to remind you how long you have been great or how long you have sucked. Your team only looks great now cause they have sucked soooooo bad for a very long time. And that is a fact and not an emotional comment.

  • Kishan

    and in present staples centre has 16 championship banners all owned by LAKERS….. NOT ONE BY CLIPPERS…. now go to sleep mummy is calling you

  • John

    That record could’ve been much much worse, what with all the injuries and lack of big name free agents. Plus, you just said that they were 2-4 when Kobe was playing. What do you think “lead” means?

    You’re a perfect example of a typical “Clippers fan”, going on about how great your team is because you can make it to the playoffs and execute flashy plays like dunks and alley-oops. Let’s get things straight here. Clippers will run LA when they become a championship-caliber team. Now go hang some more selfies in Staples Center while you think about that.

  • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

    The Clippers are great. That’s hilarious. Tell me the last time they accomplished anything noteworthy. We’ll all wait.

  • ClippersWillNeverBeChampions

    Wait. What? The Clippers? GREAT?!?! What has your team accomplished, asshole? Go comment on the posts about YOUR team! Stay the hell away from ours!

  • Alex Vermont

    and in the present the Clippers haven’t won a thing. Get the hell out of here, douche.

  • Ryan

    The Buss family can afford the $48M. And I’m sure, if need be, they can pay the penalty fees for going over the cap. Giving back the $48M is like returning a gift. It is an insult to the giver. Besides, returning the $48M will not guarantee a championship nor the signing of another superstar.

  • LAKERSRUNLA

    I can smell your fear clipper fan

  • Kaleefe

    You are a stocker. A stocker of shit. You stock it in your heart and spew it out from your filthy mouth.

  • LAKERSRUNLA

    all these accomplishments you guys have stacked up and.. wait how many championships have the clippers gotten? how many conference titles? take a seat.

  • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

    No Kobe. No Steve Nash. No Nick Young. No Jordan Hill. No Chris Kaman. The Clippers beat a D-League roster by 48 points. Congratulations. We’re still waiting for a single noteworthy accomplishment in the entire history of the Clippers franchise.

  • LakersLifer

    So by saying your great accomplishment was handing our least strongest team ever our greatest loss, YOU ARE THERE BY CONTRADICTING YOURSELF AND ADMITTING THAT WE ARE SUCH A GREAT TEAM THAT TO DEFEAT US IN OF ITSELF IS GREAT FEAT!

    Thanks for the compliment you transparent troll boy.

    Your homeless team has only 16 championships and a premier sporting facility of their own to go to catch up to us.

    Applause. Now go back to playing with dirt trolly polly boy.

  • CLIPPERSRUNLA

    Lakerfans best excuse “we didn’t have Steve Nash”

    Lmao u can’take thus stuff up!

  • CLIPPERSRUNLA

    Why talk about clippers on a lakers board?? Troll

  • CLIPPERSRUNLA

    How many points u think Kobe will average next year?

  • CLIPPERSRUNLA

    Salary cap Well u couldn’t get a decent free agent. Oh well. Lol

  • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

    I know that as a bandwagon Clippers fan, you shouldn’t be expected to be able to read any better than that, but remember…Steve Nash is one of the greatest point guards of all time. Kobe is one of the greatest players of all time. Those two plus Young and Hill were four of the Lakers best 5 or 6 players at the time, and all of them were unavailable. Let’s see the Clippers come within 50 of any team if they are missing Paul, Griffin, and Jordan. The D-Fenders would beat what would be left of that squad.

  • CLIPPERSRUNLA

    Why do we have more nationally televised games than you this year? Why re we playing @Staples on Xmas day??? And New Years Eve?

    I’m Waiting :). Lol

  • CLIPPERSRUNLA

    How many points will Kobe average this year?

  • CLIPPERSRUNLA

    Nash was good

    He is not good now

  • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

    He was still great before the collision with Lillard. He has still been very good whenever he’s been able to play. I’m not even a Nash fan; I just know how to open my eyes and watch the game.

  • Alex Vermont

    exactly, dumbass. Get the hell out of here with your Clippers garbage.

    Although I do appreciate your online “courage.” It’s cute when little boys try to put on their big boy pants.

  • LakersLifer

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

  • LakersLifer

    Why is your team HOMELESS?
    Why is your team RINGLESS?

    That’s what you need to be asking mini man.
