Breaking News: Kobe Bryant expected to miss the rest of the season for Lakers

The 2013-14 NBA season is about to officially come to an end for superstar Kobe Bryant according to Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report on March 11:

The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to declare Bryant out for the rest of the 2013-14 Lakers season later this week, according to team sources.

Kobe has been reluctant to shut it down for the season since suffering a knee fracture back in December. Initially, the knee injury didn't appear serious with the five-time NBA champion continuing to play through the pain and help the Lakers beat the Memphis Grizzlies on the road.

Unfortunately, Kobe refused to sit out after suffering the knee injury and it may have cost him the season.

After missing eight months due to a long recovery from ruptured Achilles tendon, Kobe was eager to get back on the floor. As a result, the veteran shooting guard wanted to get back to business and wasn't willing to let the knee injury hold him back.

Bryant only played six games this season before going down with the knee fracture. Ironically enough, Kobe will earn over $30.4 million this season, which is the most of his career, for playing the least amount of games in a season.

Fortunately, the future Hall of Famer will have a shot at redemption with Kobe signing a two-year contract extension back in November for a total of $48.5 million. Although the end is drawing near, Kobe has a shot to bounce back with a vengeance next season and the year after in his pursuit for a sixth NBA title.
