Lakers News: Kobe Announces He Will Play in Opener

Kobe Bryant took to his Facebook page to tell the world that he will suit up for the Lakers tonight in the team’s opening game against the Dallas Mavericks.

Feeling good enough to play tonight! I’ll use my strong midsoles for added cushion on the foot for more protection.
Looking forward to this journey as I’m sure you are.
It’s Go Time.

This is good news for L.A., who will look to get their first win of the Nash/Kobe/Pau/Ron/Dwight era after an 0-8 preseason.

The Lakers will take on the Mavericks tonight at 7:30 at Staples Center. The game will be televised on TNT.
