Other than David Stern, I don’t believe in a higher power. But if I did, I might think that Kobe Bryant had it coming to him. LA’s concierge-grabbing, diamon-ring buying, Shaq-snitching shooting guard suffered and as yet undetermined ankle injury in the first quarter of tonight’s home game against Cleveland.

Bryant was carried from the floor and appeared to be in terrific pain. So imagine how he’ll feel when he sees how many shots Lamar Odom gets tonight.
