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.

If you asked anyone who the best basketball player alive is, most people will answer either LeBron James or Kevin Durant. James Harden's name probably doesn't come up in that conversation unless you are talking to Houston Rockets fans. However, Harden has enough confidence in himself to say that he believes he is the best player alive. In an interview done with ESPN.com's Scoop Jackson, the Rockets star was ...

Kobe Bryant found a way to get out of doing the #IceBucketChallenge

Nice try, Kobe. But that's not how you do it. Nooooope. Nope nope nope. This won't work, Kobe Bryant. I know you need to rehab your muscles in an ice bath every day. I know you're trying to be clever. But the whole idea of this vapid exercise that so many are doing without actually donating to ALS research is that your whole body gets a sudden surge of freezing water in half a second. Putting your legs in a cold tub allows your body to get use ...
