Default Meaning of Kobe's injury

If Kobe bryant really is the Michael Jordan of this generation, then he will overcome anything, including pain in his shooting hand to continue to stay on the court and lead this team.

I predict that this injury brings out a new dimension of Kobe Bryant's game that we have yet to see. The most ferocious defense we have seen since Jordan in his prime. So, Kobe knowing that he can not contribute as much on the offensive end because of the pain in his finger will, like the true leader he has become, trust in his teammates to carry more of the offensive load (look for Odom's scoring to go up to about 20-22 ppg for the rest of the season and Kobe's to drop down to about 20 - 22).

In other words, I think what this injury is going to mean to Kobe is that his offensive production will have to come down so that his defensive presence can rise. Look for Kobe to become the best defender in the league for the rest of the season.
