Kobe Bryant said he wouldn’t have played in Sunday’s game due to the flu if it wasn’t the last time he would play in Detroit.
Well that assumes the Lakers don’t meet the Pistons in the Finals but we get it. Kobe had another awful shooting night with 2-of-15 makes for five points, three boards, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes. Watching his teammates clap in a circle around him in what could be a common pregame commotion, followed by having to watch him chuck up shots left and right — they’re going to have a million pound weight off their shoulders come next season. Kobe is a punt-FG% play only for the foreseeable future.
