Maybe Byron Scott knew what he was doing, after all.

The Lakers coach encouraged Kobe to shoot more. Instead, Kobe dished a career-high 17 assists.

Then, Kobe tore his rotator cuff.

Coincidence?

Kobe on Twitter:

This is what happens when I pass too much! #ShoulderShock thank u all for ur thoughts and prayers

Someone warn Nick Young before it’s too late!
