During the recent All Star game Dwyane Wade broke Kobe Bryant’s nose on a freak play. Now Kobe has to wear a face protector that looks like a gladiator ready for battle. The only good thing that could come out of this off the court it has allowed for Kobe and Wade to get closer. Wade has said sorry over and over and has even called Kobe to make sure he is okay. Wade was concerned that the face protector would hinder Kobe so he made sure that Kobe was comfortable. Most fans do not understand the NBA is a brotherhood where every player looks at another player has his brother. Now there has been writing’s that want to stir something that Kobe and Wade have beef but let’s see how Kobe feels about it,
“I’ve known Dwyane for years now,” Bryant said after the Lakers’ 104-85 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, a game in which Bryant was cleared to play shortly before tip off after appearing asymptomatic from the concussion Wade’s hit caused. “It’s always entertaining to me to hear people talk about our relationship as if they know really what’s going on and try to say there’s something between them and all this other stuff. It was very simple. It was very simple. He didn’t mean to do it. It’s just something that just happens. He’s not that type of person.”
This dispels any notion that off the court Kobe is upset with Wade. They see the bigger picture that they’re a brotherhood bigger than just one play.
