NBA (and Los Angeles Lakers) fans around the country can now officially rejoice! All-Star Kobe Bryant is coming back to play against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, Dec. 8. Bryant is recovering from a torn Achilles and has been rehabbing this season to return to his previous form.
Will he be able to propel the Lakers to the playoffs? It is too early to tell, but the Lakers faithful must be relieved to know that Kobe will be back in purple and gold sooner than later.
