Steve Nash Believes Kobe Can Return At An ‘Extremely High Level’
[new_royalslider id=”135″]

As the regular season ends tonight, there has already been a lot of focus on what the Lakers will become next season. If they plan on returning to contender status, a lot of it will have to do with the return of Kobe Bryant.

Bryant played in only six games this season, and after two major injuries and 18 seasons in the NBA, many doubt if he will ever be able to get back to the level he was at.

Lakers teammate Steve Nash is not one of those people. Nash told Lakers reporter Mike Trudell that he thinks Kobe will be back at a high level next, though it may take a little luck:

Nash understands the battle that Bryant is going through. Much like Bryant, Nash has dealt with his first big injury issue and has struggled to return. Nash, of course, is four years older than Bryant, and has spoken about how his body isn’t responding like it used to.

Bryant may realize the same thing as he has put a lot of miles on his body throughout the years, and it may just be a case of his body not being able to respond the way it used to.

Bryant, himself, is not the type of person to accept that and will work tirelessly to regain his previous form. If he is able to do so, the rest of the league better be on the lookout, because Bryant has not been silent about his quest for revenge.
