33 | April 12, 2013, Kobe Bryant tears his 'achilles' against the Golden State Warriors (April 13, 2016 foreshadowing?)

Would you believe that on April 12, 2013, Kobe Bryant supposedly tore his achilles against the Golden State Warriors?  The injury would be announced the following day, April 13.  This is the same date that three years later the Warriors would beat the Bulls winning record, and Kobe would score 60-points in his final game.  In the past, I have been mocked for saying that fake 'achilles' injuries have been reported by the numbers.

Achilles = 1+3+8+9+3+3+5+1 = 33
Kobe = 11+15+2+5 = 33
Golden St. = 7+6+3+4+5+5+1+2 = 33

Remember, Joe Bryant is the father of Kobe, and he was drafted by the Golden State Warriors.  Both Kobe and the Warriors were born in Philadelphia, where Joe Bryant played the majority of his NBA career.

You have to love the 1:44 timestamp.  Talk about signing off on the manufactured hoaxes throughout 'time'.

At the time, Kobe said he would retire after the next season.  It ended up being three years later... and I wouldn't be surprised if Kobe attempts to come back in the future.  I mean, after all, he shows he can still play by scoring 60 on 50 attempts, right?
