All eyes on Kobe Bryant


After spending the majority of last season on the bench, Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant will be looking to make a strong return when the new NBA season kicks-off in October.

The 36-year-old, who suffered a torn Achilles tendon back in April last year, told journalists he felt strong and was ready to take on a new challenge alongside new head coach Byron Scott.

Former “MVP” Steve Nash is also back from injury and will be playing alongside new signings Jeremy Lin and forward Carlos Boozer.

After a series of pre-season games, the Lakers will open their season against the Houston Rockets on October 28.
