Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant continues to report nothing but very good news regarding his surgically-repaired Achilles tendon. Bryant, during a promotional stop in the Philippines on Monday, said that he feels great. Per the LA Times: “My tendon feels really, really good,’ said Bryant at Manila’s Newport Performing Arts Theater at the 2013 Lenovo Manila Tour. ‘I was really lucky.’ Bryant tore his Achilles tendon on April 12 and had surgery the following day. ‘As soon as I did it, I said, ‘I have to make these free throws,’ remembered Bryant, who was able to convert a pair to help the Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors, despite the injury. His status for the start of the season isn’t clear but the Lakers guard recently said he has ‘shattered’ his recovery timetable. ‘The trainers go with me everywhere,’ said Bryant. ‘Family vacations, business trips — they’re there all the time.’”
