Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles at the end of the 2012-13 season, and at age 34, many people find it hard to believe the five-time champion can make a full recovery. Although Bryant’s rehab process is going according to schedule and his eyes are set on opening night, NBA analyst Charles Barkley does not see Bryant returning as a dominant player.

Barkley spoke on the Dan Patrick show this morning, and said we have seen the last of an elite Kobe Bryant.

I think he can be a good player. That’s it. Is he going to be an All-Star? He’ll probably be an All-Star because the fans will vote him in. But as far as being a dominant player, that’s not going to happen.

Bryant said he will return to full form and will do whatever it takes to regain the strength in his Achilles. Kobe has been one of the  most durable players in the NBA and if there is a player that can back from such a devastating injury, it’s him.

The Lakers struggled mightily without Kobe Bryant as they barely managed to reach the post season and got swept in the first round by the San Antonio Spurs.

Barkley talked about Dwight Howard, too, and his thoughts on whether or not Howard has what it takes to lead the Lakers in the post-Kobe era.
