The Los Angeles Lakers got back superstar guard Kobe Bryant tonight. He had teased his return with a video posted to his Facebook page and the day has arrived. The Lakers are taking on the Toronto Raptors at the Staples Center.
First, Kobe scored with a free throw attempt. This was his first bucket from the field however. He gets the ball beyond the arc and does a little pump fake to get the defender in the air and then he drives past him towards the paint. He gets trapped there, throws a couple of pump fakes before finally sinking the bucket.
Not the prettiest shot, not vintage Kobe, but still good to see him back and playing aggresively.
