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.

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? LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant: You could make a case for any of these three transc ...

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. Bosh was renting this place out f ...
