"Kobe's injury is really getting old."


Why is it that everytime Kobe plays thru an injury, it gets MAGNIFIED big time?!

Or, whenever he sustains some kind of an injury, he is fast to use it in increasing his legendary stauts?

Can't he just quietly play thru it like how Bird & other great players of the past did back in their playing days instead of telling the media "this won''t keep me from playing, I'll play thru the pain" & blah, blah, blah.

Ultimately, the only news that should be worthy of mention is when Kobe sustains an injury that's really a season-ender or takes him out several games especially during the playoffs.

Other than that, all these "critical" or "major" injuries that Kobe sustained throughout his career are nothing compared to the "grave injuries" like MJ's back in '85-'86 or KG's 2 years ago, or Grant Hill's, & etc.

In this regard, it can't be said that Kobe is more competetive (& thus, greater) than MJ, KG, & the rest because Kobe was able to continue playing while MJ, KG, & others were not, they were taken out for the season.

Hence, people should really stop all this "Kobe glorification, Kobe heroism" & all such non-sense because it really is getting old. 

Why don't the hoops media put it in another way in their headlines such as:

"Kobe LUCKED OUT once again.  He sustained an injury that's not as serious as a season-ender like MJ's, KG's, G. HIll's [& etc.]

It's time to really see it that way instead of all these glorification non-sense.
