Kobe Bryant's season likely over with torn tendon

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES, CA (WFLA) -

Kobe Bryant took Facebook in the wee hours of Saturday morning to vent about the Achilles tendon injury that likely ended his season. He wrote the "frustration is unbearable" but the setback will not end his career.
    
The Lakers' star was injured in Friday night's win over Golden State. The team, which is fighting to make the playoffs, is all but certain Bryant tore his Achilles.
    
The 34-year-old Bryant posted about his "rage" on his Facebook a few hours after being hurt, questioning why the injury happened and how he was supposed to come back from it at age 35 as the same player or better.
    
After the game, Bryant appeared to fight back tears while he thought about the upcoming final days of the Lakers' tumultuous season. After a terrible start and numerous missteps along the way, Los Angeles (42-37) is one game ahead of the Utah Jazz for the final playoff spot in the West with two games to play.
