Kobe's technical reversed by the league

Kobe sure can’t afford any more technical fouls because he already has reached a total of thirteen this season and when or if he reaches sixteen, he will be suspended from a season game. Kobe is a key player in the Los Angeles Lakers and they cannot afford to loose him for an entire game. His only way out is to either stop getting fouls or make it to the playoffs quick where once at the playoffs his total fouls will be reset.

The NBA rescinded the technical foul assessed to Kobe Bryant in Monday's 119-108 loss to the Denver Nuggets, the Lakers announced Tuesday. 

Bryant told reporters after the game that he was confident the technical foul -- which would have been his 14th on the season -- would be rescinded after speaking with referee Joey Crawford and coming to agreement that the tech was a result of a misunderstanding between Bryant and the official. 

Even with the T being rescinded, Bryant's technical foul total for the season stands at 13. If Bryant reaches 16 techs on the season, he will receive a one-game suspension from the league. Should the Lakers reach the playoffs, his total will be reset.
