Kobe Bryant’s season may be over after an MRI revealed a torn rotator cuff earlier this week.. The Lakers’ 36-year old star is still averaging 22.3 points in his 19th season. He’s also averaged 5.6 assists – the fourth highest number of his career.* Critics have spent the season saying that Kobe should pass more. Kobe took to Twitter to confirm that it was the extra passing that caused the injury.
Get better Kobe. There’s no reason you can’t compete for a scoring title at 37.
*Kobe averaged 6.3 assists in 6 games last season, but I’m not counting that because of the small sample size.
