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.

#SLAMTop50: Carmelo Anthony, no. 7

Oct 14 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: slamonline

First thing’s first: I put Carmelo Anthony fifth on my list. So I could come in here all angry about he’s way down at 7. And, after all, I wouldn’t be the first person to call Melo underrated. But whatever; fifth, seventh, the point is this guy is in the conversation as one of the handful of best basketball players in the world, and if you argue that point, I’m afraid you don’t know the game. Let’s start with the scoring: Melo averaged 27.4 ppg last year, after 28.7 ...

Wesley Matthews Says He’s ‘the Best Two-Way Two-Guard in the NBA’

Oct 14 2014 9:55am CDT | Source: slamonline

Portland Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews has never lacked in the self-confidence department. Entering his sixth season (a contract year), Matthews is looking to get everyone else to believe that he’s among the game’s truly elite wing players. With apologies to the likes of James Harden, Klay Thompson, Kobe Bryant and company, Wes argues that he’s the top two-way shooting guard in the L. Per The Columbian: Nicolas Batum said M ...

For the New York Knicks, this season is really all about next season. With several contracts coming off the books this summer, they'll finally have a chance to reset and build a team that fits president Phil Jackson's mold.  But for Amar'e Stoudemire—the most expensive of those expiring contracts—the 2014-15 campaign could be his most important yet.  In the final season of a mammoth five-year, $100 million dollar deal New York presented him in July 2010 ...
