Laker's Kobe Bryant Aiming for November Return

Los Angeles Lakers' shooting guard Kobe Bryant has been out since he underwent a a surgery in April for a torn left Achilles tendon. On Wednesday, he was on the 710 ESPN Radio to talk about his return next season. He admitted that he does not think he'll be ready for the start of the season, but he does plan to come back by, at latest, December.

From his talk on ESPN Radio:
“I’m shooting for November, December, latest- that’s my goal in my head, that’s what. I’m shooting for. I’m really, really determined about getting there. You know, I wont have any fear or any worry about the tendon rupturing again, I mean there’s nothing I can do about it, if it goes again, it goes again. But once I’m ready to go, it’s on.”
Bryant did say that as of now, he was fully mobile but was still restricted since he cannot run yet. Next season is the last in his contract. He's supposed to make $30 million for the 2013-2014 season.

Bryant is a surefire Hall of Famer, and even though it seems as if he's been in the league for a long time, he's still 34. Last season, Bryant averaged a solid 27.3 points per game as well as a career-high 6 assists per game.
