Hopefully some humor can help ease the pain of yesterday.
Since Kobe Bryant tore his achilles there was a meme going around that basically made fun of Paul Pierce for the whole injury in Game 1 of the 2008 finals, it also poked fun at LeBron James for being carted off for cramps. Made by a Lakers fan probably, it praised Kobe for tearing his achilles but still shooting two free throws and walking off.
Here's a pretty good response.
Also, obviously no Pierce in the one above, here's a good Pierce one to defend his toughness.
