VIDEO: Kobe Bryant Sprints And Shoots Before Lakers Game In China

When Kobe Bryant ruptured his Achilles tendon back in April, many wondered whether he would come back. For many, especially at his age, a torn Achilles would mean the end of a career. Once it was set that Bryant would return, it became a matter of when he’d be back. Throughout the summer, we had read stories about Bryant obliterating the normal return time, but we hadn’t really seen evidence outside of the occasional video of him on the anti-gravity treadmill.

However, before the Lakers sixth preseason, Bryant was running some sprints on the sidelines and shooting jump shots. Both videos are relatively short, but it’s great to finally see Bryant doing what he does best. Check the videos below.

P.S.: He doesn’t miss any of the four shots that he takes in the video.
