Everybody knows Kobe wants to surpass MJ in both categories, so are you telling me Kobe would risk achieving these goals by faking an injury? If you seriously believe that then there is something wrong.
Exactly this.

Lord knows I have no love for Kobe but I respect his work ethic and his desire to play. He definitely isn't faking.

That being said, if he can't come back and play effectively he should really think about restructuring his contract. Would be a bit of an A-hole move to squeeze your team for that much cash while being a shell of your former self.
