Kobe Bryant Says Achilles Feels ‘Really, Really Good’

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.’”

    Which really mean it hurts like a mutha. All the time. Kobe loves and embraces pain.

    this is great, can’t wait to see him play again, and with good roster rotation for the Lakers, wouldn’t worry about the injuries unlike last year.

    For all this dude has done for the game of Basketball, for all he’s sacrificed & has given up, that he WILL NEVER EVER get back…I hope at the end of the day he can say it was worth it.

    The Lakers still have Nash, Blake, Farmer and Goudelock at those G positions though…terribly undersized. Keep Nash and Farmer, move the others.
