Regardless of any off-season moves, coaching changes, and draft picks, the upcoming Lakers season, and possible success, will ultimately come down to Kobe Bryant’s return.
Many people doubt whether Bryant can play at the high level everyone has become accustomed to coming off of two major injuries. Not to mention Bryant will be 36 when the season starts.
But thanks to the people at Old Skool BBall, there is an inspiring video featuring Bryant and his struggles over the last two seasons.
From Bryant willing himself to knock down two free throws after tearing his achilles, to working all the way back to last season, and only making it six games before going down again.
This beautifully produced video splices comments from people like Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith, with videos of Kobe doing what he does best.
If nothing else, the video will absolutely get fans fired up for the return of Bryant this season.
