Kobe Bryant never shied away from exuding confidence, at times he’s been known to even take it one step further. Overconfidence, per say.
However, when it comes to the upcoming NBA season, no one really knows what to expect from the 35-year-old Lakers legend. I’m not even sure if he knows what to expect from himself — on the court wise.
Off the court, however, he’s still top notch and hasn’t missed a beat. He’s confident, healthy and licking his chops.
“I can’t wait to return to my duties on the court. I feel like a race horse that has been locked in a barn for months. I want to get out.”
Bryant only played six games after returning from a torn achilles injury early last season. He broke a bone in his left knee in Dec; that injury knocked him out for the remainder of the regular season.
During his six games on the court during the 2013-14 NBA season, Kobe showed limitations in his game — the most glaring of which involving his speed and quickness. Kobe averaged 13.8 points, 6.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game in those six games.
