Kobe Bryant will be back by christmas
Or perhaps even sooner. If the Denver Nuggets can continue to be a legit playoff contender without the help of a superstar, the Lakers can stay at .500 or better until their walking 27-5-5 returns. Bryant is way ahead of schedule, at least for a normal person, in terms of recovery time for his achilles injury. He’s back to shooting around, running and has been keeping us up to date with his rehab through his beloved Instagram account. There’s never a point when he touches the floor that he doesn’t believe his team can win and as we’ve seen time and time again, he can will just about any roster to a playoff run.
Anything can happen once he’s back and catches rhythm. You know you wouldn't confidently bet against him.
