Kobe is playing tonight vs the Pacers and it got me wondering what the difference was/is between the two in severity, etc. It seems to me like kobe's must not have been as bad but I'm wondering if it more the fact that kobe knows they need him to make the playoffs and pop knows the spurs can still be ok for the stretch run if they let parker get treatment and heal completely. It seems like Kobe may be playing bc Kobe decides what happens for that team and Parker is out bc everything here has to go through Dr. Pop. Thoughts?
