Kobe Bryant Cleared for Basketball Return
We haven’t seen the last of him yet. The perennial All-Star and Lakers hero has been cleared by doctors to hit the court running nine months after a torn right rotator cuff ended his 19th season. It was the third year in a row that serious injuries forced the 37-year-old to bow out. The Philadelphia native and living legend is entering the final year of his contract — he says he’ll consider retiring afterward — and is expected at his 20th Lakers training camp on September 29.
