The writer, Peter Vecsey of the New York Post, wanted to know why the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant hadn’t practiced all season up until after the Lakers Christmas defeat against the Heat, a question he thought the Los Angeles local press should have called him out on. Bryant spoke with Vecsey earlier this week, who answered his question.

So, Kobe, why weren’t you practicing all season?

“Because I have very little cartilage under my right knee cap, it’s almost bone-on-bone,” said the 32-year-old Bryant to the Post.

In order to minimize the wear and tear, Bryant, coach Phil Jackson and the Lakers decided to have Kobe sit out during practices this season.

Worrying news for Kobe Bryant.
