Lakers star Kobe Bryant says he doesn't take charges, and he's got a reason for it.Based on his own analysis of NBA greats from Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen to Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, Bryant believes there's too much of a health risk to get run over by an opponent and go crashing to the floor repeatedly.
''I learned from my predecessors, man,'' Bryant said Tuesday. ''Pippen had a (messed) up back taking charges. Bird had a (messed) up back taking charges.
''I said, 'I'm not taking charges.' I figured that (stuff) out at an early age.''

There is no I in TEAM.
A Stupid statement at the wrong time that can lead to disaster. But who am I to say this, I'm just an artist, fan, customer.... just saying.
