I thought Kobe was meant to be Iron Man according to many in that thread too?

- Wants to play
- Team doesn't want him playing
- Preseason

Thinking is hard for some people, so don't get frustrated.

Not to mention, its all they have. They realize the only thing holding this team back from a finals appearance is probably injuries.

He should be more worried about Harden's scrub level of play. LeBron shook him too hard and damaged his life.

It was stated as a "strain". This is all probably precautionary measures.

Yeah it probably is. I wonder if he'll even get heavy minutes during the regular season. Might as well pull a coach Popovic move and let your stars get more rest.

According to Brown hes trying to play the bench players to evaluate them and see how he can use them at the start of the season. Keeping players out, like Howard and Bryant gives him more minutes to throw around in these meaningless games.

There is no reason to have the teams' stars risking injury, when you can just rest them due to 'injury' and give other guys the opportunity to show their negative or positives. Brown did this very thing last preseason (as limited as it was) and due to it, was persuaded to use Ebanks more during the start of the season.

ISH is starting to remind me of the Olympics a couple of months ago. Every time a picture of Kobe popped up someone started a thread about it and it got posted in the Olympics thread, usually multiple times. I mean we're talking about pictures no one really gave two shits about getting their own thread.

And now, I guess every little Kobe-related thing in the preseason is so newsworthy it needs its own thread.

Which is the norm for almost every team during the preseason, especially during the first few games.

I'm not used to LA television channels. What channel should I check for the game on if any?

Wow, an aging superstar isn't playing in a glorified scrimmage. Shocking news.
