L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant suffered a torn Achilles tendon late in the team's win over Golden State last night and is finished for the rest of the NBA season.
Standing on crutches in front of his locker, sweaty game uniform on his back and tears in his eyes, Kobe confirmed the news, and his disappointment.
"Just terrible," Bryant said. "It's a terrible feeling, man."
Bryant will undergo an MRI on Saturday, but the team is calling the injury a "probable" and "complete tear" that will end his 2012-13 season immediately.
