So today one of the greatest basketball players of all time (Kobe Bryant) underwent surgery on his rotator cuff in his right shoulder. He will be out 6-9 months, basically he won’t be back until the start of the 2015 season.
Him being the ferocious competitor that he is i would never expect him to retire on these terms in his career. I just didn’t expect him to take on the task of coming back so nonchalantly. Below is a video of him receiving the news that he tore his labrum (which is completely removed from his shoulder bone). just the fact that he got this news from his doctor and only said “ok”. No “damn i’m done” or just burst out into tears is just remarkable to me. Very inspirational. I can only hope this video will inspire you. Also S/o to “The Players’ Tribune” for allowing kobe to share his story with us.
