Less than two weeks after Kobe Bryant returned from the debilitating Achilles heel rupture, the Black Mamba fractured the bone in his left knee.
According to reports, Bryant will be sidelined for at least six weeks, and perhaps longer, dealing the Los Angeles Lakers a serious blow, especially after they signed the living legend to a two-year, $48 million contract extension that seriously impairs their ability to sign coveted free agents.
The famously strong-willed Bryant remained defiant in the face of a possible career-ending injury.
