Finally, the day all Lakers fans have been waiting for since last April. After tearing his Achilles, Kobe Bryant is set to make his 2013-14 season debut.

The Lakers have announced that Bryant will be on the court for the team’s game Sunday night in Staples Center against the Toronto Raptors. Bryant has looked strong at the last few practices and there should not be any doubt in his ability to return at an elite level.
