Kamenetzky Brothers's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Some of Pau Gasol's comments in the wake of Kobe Bryant's Achillles injury Friday at Staples:
"It's a tough hit, a tough blow for everyone. For the ones who love him and have a great respect for him, even more. So it's a difficult time because I feel for him."
Challenge of doing it without him?
"It's got to be collective thing. As a team, we must regroup and understand that it's going to take a lot of effort and a lot of togetherness from now on to continue to play. It's going to take effort and re-adjusting a couple of things. With him on the court, we play differently. We'll figure it out, as long as we put our minds and our hearts in it and we fight as we did (Friday) to the end, every single minute, we should be ok, but right now it's just difficult to digest what happened."
Weird to see Kobe go down?
"It's hard for me to see him like that. He doesn't deserve it. It is what it is. Unfortunately, it's part of the sport, it's part of our profession. I hate that it happened to him. He works so hard and is the most dedicated guy that I ever met. And he had the courage and the strength to come out and talk to you guys."
