The Masked Kobe Bryant was the hero Los Angeles needed right now

Keywords: kobe bryant, lakers, broken nose

Rip Hamilton is well known throughout the NBA for wearing a mask that covers his entire face. Following the All Star game incident with Dwayne Wade, Kobe became the new poster child of masked men. With a broken nose and traces of a concussion, Kobe went off against the Twolves. The mask did not hinder Bryant at all; he had a game high 31 points to go with 8 assist and 7 rebounds as he lead his Lakers to victory. The Lakers play Dwayne Wade and the Miami Heat this sunday, expect Kobe to come out with a little something extra in that game.
