With the Lakers not having a game until Friday, these next three days of practice will be instrumental in seeing how soon Kobe Bryant will return to the lineup.
Judging by the reports from today, Bryant’s return is looking like it will be coming very soon.
Coach Mike D’Antoni spoke about this being a big step forward for Bryant, while Pau Gasol talked about Bryant’s transition back into the lineup. He punctuated the practice with a vicious slam dunk on a fast break.
Bryant also had another commercial released from his sponsorship with Turkish Airlines co-starring with soccer superstar Lionel Messi showing that even when he isn’t on the court, Bryant’s star power is still visible.
