How Long Until The Sixers Attempt to Bring a Hobbled Kobe Bryant Home to Finish “Where it All Started”?

I’m only half joking with that title. Adam Aron loves things he thinks people in Philly like.

I don’t like Kobe Bryant, but his Facebook post last night after likely tearing his Achilles is perhaps the best use of social media by an athlete we’ve ever seen– raw, insightful, timely, relevant… from one of the greatest ever.

Here’s what he wrote:

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.

He’s still a dick, though.

  1. He may be a bad guy but unlike Bynum he respects the game and will do everything he can to get back with no excuses.

  2. Yo, Kobe! Newsflash! Father Time’s got you by the balls and he ain’t letting go. Get used to it.

  3. Why would Adam Aron think we’d want Kobe back? After he said he was going to “Cut [our] hearts out” during the 2001 NBA Finals? I wonder how he feels knowing that Philly’s adopted son Allen Iverson will always be far more loved in the City of Brotherly Love than him, who was a homegrown talent? Fuck you Kobe. This is one of those rare times where I actually agree with your P.O.V. on something Kyle. Kobe is a dick, and he always will be. And hes a rapist, of course.

  4. Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to know a lot approximately this, like
    you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you simply can
    do with a few % to pressure the message house a bit, however other than that, this is great blog.
    A great read. I will certainly be back.
