By now, you have heard the Kobe Bryant will be out for six weeks with a fracture in his left leg, and it is clearly not good news. Kobe has already called out his doubters, and his main focus will be on getting back to the level we are used to seeing him at.

Bryant is a living legend, and many players in the league looked up to him while they grew up. He obviously garners a lot of respect from everyone around the NBA, and this has an impact on everyone playing, as the NBA isn’t as good when Kobe Bryant isn’t in it. NBA players took to Twitter to show their respect and well wishes:

As you can see, Bryant has the respect of the players around the league. He was very appreciative of the support:

The Lakers are battling a lot of injuries, but they have some help coming. They signed Kendall Marshall to patch up some of their point guard issues on Thursday.

As for Bryant, there is no doubt he will be back, and hopefully he can get back to the level we have seen him reach in the past.
