When is Kobe coming back? Well, according to ESPN, the Black Mamba may make his highly anticipated return from his Achilles tendon injury as early as Friday, December 7 at the Sacramento Kings. He hasn’t been cleared to play, but he hasn’t been ruled out either. You can be sure that Bryant, who just signed a two-year, $48.5 million extension, will be out to prove a point after being ranked 25th in ESPN’s NBA player rankings, the criticism over his recent contract, and to show that he’s still a top player post-injury. To commemorate his (hopefully) imminent return, here is a NBA 2K14 (current gen) Kobe trailer.
UPDATE: Kobe will make his comeback on Sunday, December 8 vs the Raptors (on NBA TV at 9:30pm EST). source:
