Lakers News: Kareem Unsure Kobe Bryant’s Body Will Hold Up

Kobe Bryant will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest Lakers to play for the franchise. The future NBA Hall of Famer was only able to play six games this season when he went down with a knee injury back on Dec 17. With his season done, many believe that Bryant will come back strong next season.

Mark Medina from the LA Daily News, sat down with Laker legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and talked about the uncertainty of Bryant’s health for next season and how he praised him for his work ethic off the court.

Kobe is very dedicated that way. He’s worked on his body, but he’s having major failures and not just minor stuff, spontaneously breaking a bone is not a good sign.

What he does he have to prove? At this point, he should worry about being able to walk around and do normal things for the rest of his life, he’s very wealthy and achieved everything in his profession. What does he have to worry about? He can walk away and be satisfied. He has the jewelry and the stats.

Kareem also talked about how Kobe can surpass his record on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

It’s going to be tough. The problem for him is if he’s going to break the record, he would have be the focus of the offense, his body is breaking down. It’s tough. Why would these guys want to play that long? They make so much money? I wouldn’t play that long.

During the six games played this season, Kobe was only able to average 13.8 points, 6.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game. Kobe still ranks as the fourth all-time leader scorer in the NBA behind Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Kareem. Bryant is 6,687 points away to tie Abdul-Jabbar’s number one spot on the list.

With the Lakers signing Bryant to a two-year $48.5 million contract extension in November, he plans to fulfill his contract to his best of his ability to get back on the court. During his time off the court, Kobe is currently continuing his rehabilitation from an exercise bicycle to an elliptical machine.
