    His body is a mess, right? I remember reading somewhere that he was in almost constant pain.

    Good player. Sad to see him go out like that.

    Barely. As @FatKidSullivan said, he has perpetual health problems.

    I don't think he mentions it; supposedly both him and the wife were both cheating on each other at the same time.

    I know his knees are pretty much shot. I'm not sure what else is wrong with him.

    There is a rumor that the baby is actually white, and that he, himself, was cheating with a young black woman.

    I hadn't heard about that. I guess they must really like each other.

    He's had a bad back for years, the medical staff in Phoenix was able to keep him together.

    He came to the Lakers to try and get a ring, but during the first regular season game against Portland, he bumped knees with Damian Lillard, fractured his leg (I think) and ended up with nerve damage through out his body.

    Grantland put out some kinda mini-documentary following him through his rehab.

    At one point, they show him being injected with a needle in the back that had to be around 8 inches long.

    I read on Bleacher Report a week ago that he was gonna retire last year, but he came back this year to try to let the Lakers trade him; he didn't even make it past the pre-season.

    Great great point guard and tough too.

    2010 Western Conference Finals, he gets his nose broken, pops it back in place and keeps on playing. :jj:
