Rehab Update: Kobe Bryant now running


Kobe Bryant promised Lakers fan a big update video earlier today, and he delivered, posting a 15-second video showing himself running on a treadmill at the Lakers facilities.

 

Bryant ruptured his Achilles in mid-April, meaning he’s running at full speed just FOUR MONTHS after the injury. Bryant has stated multiple times that he’s shattered the timetable for returning from this injury, but it doesn’t make it any less unbelievable. Even if Bryant doesn’t return for opening night, he’ll still be back far sooner than anyone expected.
