Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Tweets Before First Game Versus Raptors

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Los Angeles LakersIt’s the moment all Los Angeles Lakers fans, players and members of the organization have been waiting for: Kobe Bryant’s return. The 35-year-old guard announced his return in a dramatic video and will be in the starting lineup tonight against the Toronto Raptors.

Eight months removed from tearing his Achilles, Bryant will be back on the court and the entire NBA world will be watching. After practice this morning, Bryant took to Twitter with another cryptic message:

While he doesn’t have a strict minutes limit, head coach Mike D’Antoni anticipates playing him in the 20-minute range as the Lakers weathered the storm without their superstar guard. With chemistry that wasn’t there last season, the 2013-14 Lakers play for each other and Bryant should fit right in.

There’s also the possibility of him playing some point guard as Steve Blake is the teams only true point guard and Bryant showed last season that he can facilitate when he wants. It’ll be interesting to see how he looks after so much time off, but the Lakers and D’Antoni will ease him as they look to continue their great play.

Welcome back, Bean.

    Gothem’s Reckoning is the 3rd track from the “Dark Knight Rises” sound track which was composed by Hans Zimmer which is probably the pregame track he is listening to.

    Kobe has just come through the tunnel and is starting into the layup line…the hairs on the back of my neck are stranding up…

    Why in the Hell would MD take out the hottest player in the 2nd half (X_Man) and leave him out for the rest of the game, I swear MD has to be the worst coach. He just can’t evaluate the situation offensively or defensively, I mean it actually took him until half time to figure out what player(s) were causing the Lakers the most damage and still couldn’t figure out a way to stop or slow them down, how about alittle man to man defense and helpout only in the paint. How this guy made it to the NBA is beyond me ??????? Plus the fact that he couldn’t read that the team was out of balance with Kobe, so why not play Kobe as a reserve and let him get used to the team, not let the team get used to Kobe, this guy is just an IDIOT !!!!!

      I’ve been complaining all postgame about this. The minute he took out X for Kobe, I was shocked. And then when I saw Blake coming in, I was hoping it was for Kobe, but it was for Johnson, our best defensive man on the team right now. I don’t get it. He should have left the string that was in for the end of the 3rd during the entire 4th. They had that 10-1 run at the end of the 3rd, it could have gone strong into the 4th, but NO… MDA was an idiot. It’s not going to take one game to get Kobe game-acclimated. It’s obvious. So putting him in during the 4th doesn’t make any type of sense. But I’m right there with you.

      This should have been an easy W.
