ooh, i know it could have gave out any time, but no one is talking shit about Popavich resting players now! That shit helps. Kobe would always talk about his legs were tired before the games even started and he could barely walk and it took all the trainers and massage therapists they had to lossen his legs up so he could play.
Phil Jackson WOULD NEVER EVER play Kobe that many minutes at his age. He was keeping kobe at 30-32 for the past few years. Even when they werent a good team.
