Lakers News: Dr. Judy Seto Discusses Traveling With Kobe In China

When Kobe Bryant tore his left Achilles tendon at the age of 34, most feared that he would never return the same. While it remains to be seen, there is great optimism and confidence that he will return better than ever with the guidance of Dr. Judy Seto.

Dr. Judy Seto is the team’s head physical therapist and has been instrumental in helping Bryant recover from a perceived devastating injury. She has seemingly traveled around the world this summer, helping the Laker superstar get back to the court as soon as possible.

In an interview with Lakers’ reporter Mike Trudell, Dr. Seto discussed what it’s like to be around Bryant in China. To no one’s surprise, it’s pandemonium when Bryant makes his yearly visit to the country:

“It’s fanatical. Pandemonium. The fans are absolutely exuberant, with the best of intentions. “

Dr. Seto also shared a humorous story about one of her trips with Bryant when security thought she was a local fan:

“One of the funny things is that the trips I’ve been on with him — they think I’m a local fan, so I get pulled out of his group by local security, and I have to show my badge. There may be eight people in our group, so now they put me in the middle to make sure I don’t get lost in the crowd.”

While many may not be familiar with Dr. Seto, Bryant gives all the credit for his fast recovery to her. After Bryant sustained the injury, Dr. Seto recommended that he immediately get surgery instead of waiting for the swelling to reduce, which has sped up the recovery process.

With guidance from Dr. Seto, Bryant has made headlines throughout the entire offseason by saying that he was ahead of schedule in August and recently mentioned how he could probably play right now if it was the playoffs or NBA Finals.
