Kobe Bryant will make his return to Staples Center next season after undergoing surgery on a torn rotator cuff. Lakers Nation is optimistic that the team will return to its old winning ways sooner than later. 

According to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times, Bryant has expressed a willingness to play small forward next season. Head coach Byron Scott thinks it's possible to see Bryant play power forward as well.

Bryant, who is one of the league's most prolific shooting guards, will have his work set out for him. Small-ball basketball has been a very effective and popular trend in the NBA

Do you think it's a good idea to have Bryant play the stretch 4 position? What is the ideal position for the Black Mamba to play next season? 

Watch the video above as NBA Senior Writer Kevin Ding joins Bleacher Report's Stephen Nelson to discuss whether it's a good idea or bad idea to play Bryant at power forward.
