I tried saying this earlier not the best excuse in the world but decent one Kobe being 36 years old in all the older you get especially as an professional athlete the harder it is playing through sickness.
This is just another one of maybe fourteen times where kobe has faked an injury after playing like shit
I was getting ready to call it bullshyt, but apparently Scott knew about Kobe's "flu-like symptoms" before the game. I mean shit, I get that Kobe is washed up, but dude shooting 1/14? Obviously not the norm.
