I liked Kobe's answer to Patrick O'Neal's question of what it would take for him to miss a game.
He's not human, if Sasha is the T-800, Kobe must be the T-1000

Look at the thing he's wearing on his finger, how the hell do you still shoot with that, guy is amazing.
Kobe Bryant played through his strained elbow on Monday, scoring 34 points on 14-of-26 shooting, with seven rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 36 minutes.
Kobe has scored 34+ points in four consecutive games, and his willingness (and ability) to play through injuries is one of the things that distinguish him. Keep him active without a second thought.
Kobe Bryant suffered a right arm injury in Saturday's double-overtime win against the Kings, but played through it, even hitting a couple 3-pointers in the extra sessions.
The injury sounded serious enough that it might have shut other players down for the night. Kobe said he still didn’t have much feeling in his arm after the game, and that he couldn’t bend the elbow for stretches of the game. He's bothered by the arm, a knee injury and broken finger, but simply continues to play through it, using his left and adjusting his shot as necessary. Keep him in your lineup until further notice.
Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 38 points on Saturday, adding four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and five turnovers in a double-OT victory in Sacramento.
Kobe also played some impressive defense against Tyreke Evans down the stretch, not that anything he does surprises us at this point.

And remember, Warriors beat Boston just last night.
