Kobe Bryant Walks Without A Boot (VIDEO)

While you undoubtedly heard that Instagram, owned by Facebook, has taken a shot at Twitter’s Vine app. A 6 second video sharing, social media network. Instagram has announced that it will allow users to post 15 second videos to their Instagram accounts.

One good thing that came out the Instagram announcement is this video of Kobe Bryant walking with out a walking boot for the first time.

Kobe captions the video: “June 1st. 7:30am. My first steps without the boot. Rockin the #medicalmambas Walkin like a baby giraffe. #achillesrupture #challenge #pray4bear #recovery”

Kobe Bryant missed the entire NBA Playoffs with torn Achilles Tendon and had surgery to repair the tendon on April 13th. He has hoped that he’d be back in time for opening nights but more recently suggested November or December as a more realistic date.

And recently Kobe Bryant has won some Social Media Awards including the “140 Award,” “Snap Shot Award” and “The Social MVP.” He beat out LeBron James, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and Steph Curry for that award.

Apparently only basketball players were nominated.
