Kobe Bryant Reportedly Throws Up On Team Bus Hours Before Game Six

The NBA Playoffs have a history of players stepping up in a big way despite being sick. Could Kobe Bryant be joining that class on Thursday night? With the Lakers and Nuggets just hours away from the start of game six, Bryant reportedly threw up on the team bus on his way to the arena. TNT first reported the news on their broadcast of a different playoff game.

Here is video of the news:

Certainly not great news if you're a Lakers fan, but all reports have indicated that Bryant fully intends to play tonight. He is officially listed as a game-time decision for game six, but do really not expect Kobe to miss a playoff game? The guy could be in child labor and he'd still play.*

*(OK, that's physically impossible, but hopefully you get the point.)

Game six between the Lakers and Nuggets is set for 7:30 p.m. PT.

Update: TNT says Kobe threw up, Kevin Ding tweets that he did not. So there's that.
