Nope. My friend (doing rotations currently and he's a UCLA med student) actually spoke to Kobe's doctor who performed his surgery, and the doc said it was only partially torn. That's why he was able to walk off the court, and that's also why he's progressing this fast in his rehab. I have no clue why the media/lakers/kobe are portraying it as FULL tear...but it's not. I can't reveal anything more than that....but I wouldn't make this up and neither would my friend.

I had a complete / full rupture and i not only walked off of the football field but played another down before i walked off. It was clear something was "off" but I wasnt completely convinced it had happened until the Doctors diagnosis many hours later. Apparently my reaction isnt common but it does prove that , much like Kobe shooting 2 free throws and walking off of the court, that it's possible to have a complete rupture and still walk.

Hopefully to make sure Dwight left, so we can have the flexibility to bring a more competitive star in with the money Dwight left behind.

According to CDR, Kobe is THREE MONTHS ahead of schedule ... :man4:

Kobe Bryant has told Chris Douglas-Roberts he is three months ahead of schedule after tearing his Achilles in April. Douglas-Roberts is playing for the Los Angeles Lakers summer league squad and spoke with media after the Lakers' victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.

"He told me he's three months ahead of schedule, which is very Kobe-like," Douglas-Roberts said regarding his recent conversations with Bryant.

Bryant is expected to begin running in about three weeks. Bryant has hinted that he is ahead of schedule, but a specific number had not been placed on how far ahead he is.

He immediately underwent surgery after confirming the Achilles had completely torn on April 12. He has since stated he expects to play at a "high level" for at least three more years.

I can imagine that he'll be able to play when the season starts, but maybe only for 20 - 25 minutes before it tightens up and he can't run.


Kobe
























your sister.

lol, nothing against your sister but this a professional athlete we're talking about with wolverine healing powers.

Everyone reacts differently and there are a dozen different ways it can be torn/treated.

That being said, I'm STILL not convinced Kobe will be there opening day and I'm CERTAIN he won't be "Kobe Bryant". He may NEVER be "Kobe Bryant" again. I expect he'll return and at some point in the season will look like an elite SG in the league, but I don't know when and I doubt he EVER looks the way he looked last season.

If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to celebrate, but I just have seen too many torn Achilles end people's athletic lives to be overly optimistic about a full recovery.

Kobe is wolverine.

He has proven time over time that betting against him isn't very smart especially when it comes to injuries. Will he be the same? we will find out I guess but you better believe he is hell-bent to prove that one can come back from such an injury and be the same.

If he can't win a 'Chip, at least he can show how you can overcome career ending injuries at 35.

I'll echo the "every case is different" - but I'll slightly alter the post above TRD's. Kobe's treatment >>>> your sister's, almost without any doubt.

I really don't know what to make of his injury/comeback

A part of me says this is going to take him a considerable step back in his ability to play. I'm not so sure he can come back the same as last season especially at his age...

then again, this is Kobe Bean Bryant we are talking about...

We shall see...

This is basically my only reason to remain hopeful. Advanced procedures and advanced treatment far and away better than anything I've witnessed should mean a better outcome.

he'll be back by opening day. not really worried.


:man10: partial tear, not even close. It was a full rupture. I know your friend is someone you trust and believe but I'll believe Gary Vitti himself and the actually surgery picture Kobe took of the operation which actually shows the complete tear before anybody else's thoughts/opinions.

I've read this kind of things so many times. I do understand why you feel he won't be "Kobe Bryant", but.... he IS "Kobe Bryant", and while he is a freak athlete, he's a basketball genius, he will know how to adapt. I do agree it may take some time, but I'm sure he'll get there, and that's because he is "Kobe Bryant".

And real, I believe you know this.

And real, I believe you know this.

I'm expecting him to come back and be a more efficient human being in terms of movement. He'll have to adjust because he'll lose a lot of explosive ability. His already excellent footwork will have to be a premium and he'll have to work to get his handles back to where they used to be despite his fingers.

He won't be dunking on many people, at least for a long, long time.

Physically his body is going to be limited for at least the first few months, then he's going to have to adjust to having this surgically repaired mega Achilles on one side which can cause discomfort, lack of mobility, and can affect the way he uses his other Achilles.

It's not that I don't believe he'll come back and be an NBA level player. I'm not sure I believe that he'll come back and be the best SG in basketball. I think those days are probably over.

In all fairness to my sis, she is a professional marathon runner, but yes I agree that Kobe is in a different world from her. My point was not to compare the two outright, just to mention that based on the case I saw personally, it's one thing to "be cleared" for athletics, and another entirely to be back to where you once were. It seems like a long process.

Look at Billups. Once he came back, it took another season before he was contributing like an all-star again.

For the record, I wasn't comparing athleticism or anything like that when I made the comparison: I was talking just about the quality of treatment they likely received.

thread title had me confused as hell....lol.. I was like why the hell is there a movie thread in LD that has 682 pages..... Um I got owned.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.

That was one of the worst, most annoyingly presented arguments I've ever heard, obnoxious, loud, angry. He said too many stupid things to count, talking out of his ***, clearly a Kobe hater. I wish I had those 15 minutes of my life back.
