Kobe Bryant and Arthritis

Arthritis really sucks, especially if you are young and in a field that requires work with the hands. Many people might scoff at Kobe Bryant's arthritis problems , but as a musician who has dealt with a similar issue, it is quite debilitating and demoralizing to deal with when it directly affects one craft. And the thing is, arthritis can't really be 'cured' by a pill or an operation. It never goes away, you just deal with it. In this way, Bryant really is a remarkable athlete given the fine motor skills needed to shoot a ball through a tiny hoop. But I still don't like the Lakers.
