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.

Los Angeles Dodgers: Turn down for what?

Los Angeles is the city of stars. From Kobe Bryant to Clayton Kershaw, Hollywood Blvd. to a night at the Griffith Observatory, stars can be seen on a nightly basis in LA. However, a lesser known utility infielder may be the MVP of the Los Angeles Dodgers so far this season. Nobody made a huge deal when the Dodgers signed Justin Turner, who still has arbitration years left and cannot become a free agent until 2017. The 29-year ...
