Why does it seem that Kobe Bryant has health problems every time the Los Angeles Lakers play a team that has a star player?

On February 21st 2008, Kobe and the Lakers took on Shaq, Steve Nash, Amare Staudemire, and Grant Hill of the Pheonix Suns. Kobe Bryant was battling a dislocated pinky but decided to play anyway because he loves playing against super-star players. He stepped it up scoring 41 points on 16-25 shooting. The Lakers spoil Shaq's debute with the Pheonix Suns winning the game 130-124 with a lucky performance by Kobe-ball-hog Bryant. Usually, Kobe will have the fortune of being injured against teams with star players.
