On this play in March of 2013 Kobe Bryant shows he still has his athleticism as he skies over Josh Smith for the huge dunk.
The big question is whether Kobe will return to this form when he returns from his torn achilles injury. We expect Kobe back sometime around Christmas or after. He has been rumored to be ahead of schedule. This could be Kobe's last couple of years and many wonder if this injury hinders his play and takes his out of elite status.
The Laker's really don't have a chance to compete this year after losing Dwight and having an old Pau and injured Kobe. Hopefully they can find some big free agents to sign next year to make Kobe's last couple of season's competitive.
