Kobe Bryant’s Highlights From His Return Against The Toronto Raptors

i-1Kobe Bryant returned to the court for the first time since tearing his Achilles tendon last season, as the Lakers took on the the Toronto Raptors at Staples Center. Bryant announced his return via his Facebook page on Friday and created a buzz around the Lakers 20th game of the season.

The 35-year-old was injured last April in a regular season game against the Golden State Warriors and has been rehabbing all off-season to get back into action. Many believed he would not make his return until Christmas Day or later, but Bryant returned just less than eight months after the injury.

He was placed in the starting lineup at shooting guard, alongside Steve Blake, Wesley Johnson, Robert Sacre and Pau Gasol.
