Kobe returns Sunday

The Lakers have announced Kobe Bryant will make his return from a torn Achilles on Sunday against the Raptors after eight months of surgery and rehabilitation.


Bryant has put his famous work ethic to a fevered pitch to try to get back on the floor as soon as possible. Just nobody thought it would be this soon, considering Bryant's age and the load he would have to carry upon his return.

The Toronto Raptors will get to be his first victims and he has victimized them before, going for 81 points against them in a Sunday evening tilt before. The Raptors and Lakers play Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Good luck Toronto.

Kobe is officially back.
