For a few moments LA Lakers fans thought they might have seen Kobe Bryant in action for the final time after he dislocated his finger during his last game against the San Antonio Spurs.
Fortunately, for Bryant and Lakers fans, the team’s trainer Gary Vitti was at hand to rescue the situation.
He directed the Lakers legend to the bench before popping his finger back in place, with Bryant wincing in pain for a few moments.
Clearly Vitti has done this before and Bryant was quickly back in action.
The news got even better after the game, with Bryant cleared of any lasting effects from the injury injury.
Gotta expect Kobe will play in Chicago on Sunday given that X-Rays were negative on the finger. Final game in MJ’s house.
