NBA: Kobe Bryant Asks David Beckam for Advice on Achilles Injury

Jun 23 2013, 11:45pm CDT | by

Kobe Bryant, who is recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon, sought out the advice of English soccer star David Beckham.

Kobe Bryant, who is recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon, sought out the advice of English soccer star David Beckham. 

Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times says Beckham, who tore his Achilles in 2010, was able to make a strong return to the pitch. Bryant talked about their close relationship and him being encouraged by Beckham's comeback. 

"Becks and I have grown to be pretty close since he's been playing in Los Angeles for [the Galaxy] the last five years. 

"He and I talked for quite a bit about his process, and his recovery. He hasn't had any issues with it since. He's won several championships since the injury, so I'm pretty encouraged by that."

Bryant, whose return was originally set at six to nine months, recently said he expects to return to the court November or December, which would put him at seven to eight months. 

"It's going well. I'm pretty much two months out of surgery, and I'm walking. I can get up on my toes. I'm pleased with how it's going so far."

According to Pincus, Bryant admitted to having some doubts about regaining his physical abilities. 

"You have to allow yourself to think that, because it keeps you on edge. It keeps you motivated. It keeps you strong. I think for me, once I started hearing everybody else say, 'Well, maybe this is it. Maybe this is too much.' -- that's what really gave me the determination to see if I can prove them wrong."

The 34-year-old Bryant suffered a torn left Achilles' tendon in an April game against the Golden State Warriors as the regular season was drawing to a conclusion. Bryant averaged 27.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and six assists in the 2012-13 NBA season, per ESPN stats

New York Knicks Press Conference
For as relieved as fans of the New York Knicks might be after the team re-signed Carmelo Anthony to a long-term deal, there are bound to be many for whom trepidation trumps joy. How, after all, does one build a contender around a 30-year-old, mostly one-dimensional star slated to eat up nearly 36 percent of the team's salary cap ($22.4 million of the club's $63 million)? Is it even possible? ...

Chris Bosh Is Reportedly Selling His Ridiculous California Palace

2014 Summer TCA Tour - Day 11
At one point, Chris Bosh owned two of the most expensive NBA-player owned houses in the league, with Kobe Bryant taking the third. As far as we know, Bosh never sold his Miami home (worth over $12 million), though he did put it on the market last year. Now, Bosh is reportedly primed to sell his Pacific Palisades, CA house, which is less of a house and more of a god damn paradise with a roof — and many parts of it don’t even have a roof. Bo ...
