Kobe Bryant Achilles Injury Prompts Epic Facebook Rant

by at .  Updated at . Comments

For weeks, Kobe Bryant has been carrying the Los Angeles Lakers and their playoff chances on his back.

But it was a different body part that felled the NBA superstar last night, as Bryant tore his Achilles tendon, ending his season and possibly beyond.

Even the biggest Laker hater has to be shaking his or her head at the news. Who wants to see one of sports' living legends go out in such a way?

But is Kobe done for good? The injury - and perhaps some pain medication - prompted Bryant to go on an EPIC Facebook rant this morning at 3:30.

It includes words of doubt, inspiration... and a warning to any bear looking for a fight. And it's worth just reading in its entirety below:

This is such BS! All the training and sacrifice just flew out the window with one step that I've done millions of times! The frustration is unbearable. The anger is rage. Why the hell did this happen ?!? Makes no damn sense. Now I'm supposed to come back from this and be the same player Or better at 35?!? How in the world am I supposed to do that??

I have NO CLUE. Do I have the consistent will to overcome this thing? Maybe I should break out the rocking chair and reminisce on the career that was. Maybe this is how my book ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me...Then again maybe not! It's 3:30am, my foot feels like dead weight, my head is spinning from the pain meds and I'm wide awake. Forgive my Venting but what's the purpose of social media if I won't bring it to you Real No Image?? Feels good to vent, let it out. To feel as if THIS is the WORST thing EVER! Because After ALL the venting, a real perspective sets in. There are far greater issues/challenges in the world then a torn achilles. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, find the silver lining and get to work with the same belief, same drive and same conviction as ever.

One day, the beginning of a new career journey will commence. Today is NOT that day.

"If you see me in a fight with a bear, prey for the bear". Ive always loved that quote. Thats "mamba mentality" we don't quit, we don't cower, we don't run. We endure and conquer.

I know it's a long post but I'm Facebook Venting LOL. Maybe now I can actually get some sleep and be excited for surgery tomorrow. First step of a new challenge.

Guess I will be Coach Vino the rest of this season. I have faith in my teammates. They will come thru.

Thank you for all your prayers and support. Much Love Always. Mamba Out

Mamba? Yeah okay. Well can't say anything but KARMA baby. Kobe treating his wife and other women like his personal toys, against there will or with teenagers. No more of that when he becomes a has-been. His career was coming to an end sooner or later...personally it is not soon enough. He's an arrogant rapist ahole...nice to see him go.
