In a recent interview, Kobe Bryant happily answered queries about probable visit to India, his new line of shoes and his preference for old-school dunk rules. However, his happiness was not reflected on the injury updates.
The Lakers guard informed before the All-Star game on Sunday that his recovery from the injury is coming slowly.
“I’m optimistic coming out of the break that I will have some improvements once I get back to L.A. and do a couple [of] follow-ups and then go from there,” Bryant said. “But it’s been a slow process,” said Kobe Bryant, according to Los Angeles Times.
It was the second time Kobe has been unable to play the game due to injuries. In 2010 as well, he had to sit on the bench. But, he is hopeful and assures that he will return.“I just need to keep my blinders on and just focus on getting better myself and going from there.” He also mentioned that he has doubts about his body giving out at the age of 35. “Of course. Absolutely.” “That’s part of the excitement of the challenge, that level of uncertainty. ‘Is this it’ sort of thing, are my best days behind me sort of thing. And to have those conversations with yourself and not be intimidated by that and not be succumbing to that is part of the challenge,” added Kobe. Kobe signed a two-year, $48.5 million extension in November and he is optimistic about the Lakers. “What we have coming up this off-season with the cap space and what we have ahead of ourselves seems to be right in the Lakers’ wheelhouse in terms of turning things around pretty quickly,” said Kobe.
We wish Kobe Bryant to hit the court soon.
