Breaking News 0413-kobe-bryant-getty
Kobe Bryant is terrified his playing career is over — after tearing his Achilles — and he”s so PISSED about it … he couldn”t stop himself from venting in an emotional, rambling Facebook post.

The Lakers superstar was up at 3:30AM nursing the injury he suffered in last night”s game … when he started railing, “This is such BS! All the training and sacrifice just flew out the window with one step that I”ve done millions of times! The frustration is unbearable. The anger is rage.”

Kobe was so upset he even hinted at retirement, saying … “Maybe I should break out the rocking chair and reminisce on the career that was. Maybe this is how my book ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me…”

But in the middle of the post … the Black Mamba recaptures his competitive edge and says he”s looking for the “silver lining” and wants to get back to work with the “same drive and same conviction.”

Best of all … Kobe quotes the Jay-Z lyric — “If you see me in a fight with a bear, prey [sic] for the bear”. Ive always loved that quote. Thats “mamba mentality” we don”t quit, we don”t cower, we don”t run. We endure and conquer.”

There”s a lot more in the post, including how much pain he”s in … and prepping for surgery.
