NBA: LA Lakers G Kobe Bryant Runs on Anti-Gravity Treadmill

Aug 19 2013, 7:22pm CDT | by

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant posted an Instagram photo of himself running on an anti-gravity treadmill as part of his rehabilitation from an Achilles tendon injury.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is rehabbing on an anti-gravity trademill. 

NBA.com's Sekou Smith posted a video of Bryant running on the treadmill. Bryant initially posted it on his Instagram account. 

The main advantage of the anti-gravity treadmill is it allows him to walk or run without putting undue pressure on his injured Achilles tendon, per LakersNation.com's Phillip Barnett. 

Smith says the video is hard evidence of the shape Bryant is in, months after he suffered the season-ending injury against the Golden State Warriors. Smith compares the Lakers star's situation to a friend of his who had the same injury but needed 15 months to fully recover.

The friend saw Smith's videos of Bryant during the Nike Basketball tour in Asia, prompting him to say his progress was "nothing short of remarkable." Smith also made a bold prediction regarding Bryant's comeback.  

"I'm upgrading my prediction to sooner rather than later and requesting to alter that to training camp if he keeps progressing at this rate." 

According to SoCal.com's Mark Medina, the Lakers guard told Jimmy Kennel during an interview that he is still unsure if he will take the court in their season opener on October 29 against their cross-town rivals, the Clippers, at the Staples Center. In spite of this, Bryant insists he's made progress that could make him play sooner than expected. 

Bryant averaged 27.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and six assists in 78 games before suffering the Achilles tendon injury on April 12, per ESPN.com.

How LeBron James Can Help Dion Waiters Become the Next Dwyane Wade

Jul 28 2014 9:45pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Miami Heat might’ve been an aging goliath, but compared to the alternative LeBron James now faces with the Cleveland Cavaliers—youth and talent, sure, but with baggage enough for an airport claim—you can’t say he took the easy way out. It doesn’t help that James leaves behind two Hall of Famers, of course. Unless, however, King James is able to do something almost as difficult as bringing a banner to his title-starved state: turning Dion Waiters into the next Dwy ...
