Kobe Texts Teammates During Games

Kobe Bryant is sidelined after sustaining a torn left Achilles’ tendon, the workaholic confined to his bed to watch games on television after 17 years of going full bore.
Is Bryant using this time to relax, to take a break? Quite the contrary.
In each of the two games he has missed, Sunday against San Antonio and Wednesday against Houston, Bryant has either sent texts or called players during the game.
In Sunday’s win over the Spurs, Bryant called Lakers trainer Gary Vitti during halftime and asked to speak with Gasol. He told the forward to stay aggressive despite his struggles in the first half.
Then on Wednesday, Bryant once again reached out to his teammates.
Said Gasol: “I didn’t look at my phone [during the game], but I just saw a few messages that he sent to a few of us.”
