How long has Kobe been playing with a broken finger? He has had two fingers tied together for a while now. I thought he was doing it for some other reasons but in the game against Cleveland a few days ago he messed up that finger again. This got me thinking more about this. Does he just refuse to let it heal? You'd think the Laker's would want him to give it time to heal and not LET him play in the meantime. What gives?
