kobe can probably come back, right? i think it depends on when he wants to have surgery (if he needs it). some quick googling leads me to patty mills, who played on a torn rotator cuff through the chip, then had a 7-month surgery/recovery in the offseason. what's the point, i guess, but what's the point in not having him play if he wants to?
i'm pleasantly surprised to see kyle lowry made the all-star game. totally forgot carmelo was going to, lol.
