Kobe Bryant's MRI reveals torn rotator cuff
Friday January 23rd, 2015

Kobe Bryant is amazing at basketball, and it turns out he is pretty good at telling jokes as well, as the volume-shooting Los Angeles Lakers guard posted a hilarious explanation for his shoulder injury on Twitter.

Kobe is averaging 20.4 field goal attempts this season and is leading the league in field goals missed with 447. He is also averaging 5.6 assists a night with the Lakers, which is an improvement from his career average of 4.8.

Bryant suffered a torn rotator cuff on Wednesday against the New Orleans Pelicans, an injury that will seemingly end his season, as the struggling Lakers are unlikely to make the postseason.
