Mitch Kupchak Says Kobe Looks Good, Could Play Some Small Forward

Kobe Bryant plans to come back with a vengeance next season after playing only six games last season. Many people doubt whether Kobe can return at the same level after two serious injuries, but he plans on proving everyone wrong.

Bryant has already began working out in preparation for next season at the Lakers practice facility. Mitch Kupchak’s office looks out over the court and Kupchak revealed what he saw from Kobe on an interview with ESPN LA 710 radio:

No one in the NBA has the drive and desire of Kobe Bryant. If anyone can come back from these kinds of setbacks, it is Bryant. He’s going to do everything possible to dominate the NBA once again.

He will have some different teammates to go to war with. The Lakers already drafted Julius Randle, who expects to be an immediate contributor, but the Lakers will also be major players in free agency — something that Kupchak said could lead to Bryant spending some time at the small forward position:

The Lakers have a number of options in free agency, and at the top of the list is Carmelo Anthony. If they are unable to lure him to LA, there are other options available including Chandler Parsons, and Kyle Lowry.

The Lakers will do everything possible to put the best team around Kobe for his last two years in purple and gold. If that leads to Bryant playing different positions, he will gladly do so as long as the Lakers are winning.
