According to reports, the Los Angeles Lakers are shutting Kobe Bryant down for the rest of the season. Bryant injured his rotator cuff earlier this week against the Pelicans, and the team said they would wait till he was examined by doctors back in LA, before commenting. They meet with team doctors this morning and determined the best idea was to end Bryant’s season. It makes the most sense for the big picture anyway because this season for the Lakers was over in November. This will give his body time to rest for one final push next season, as well as give the Lakers a chance to secure a top five pick in the draft by continuing to play horrible.
