It wouldn’t officially be Kobe Bryant’s return if there weren’t some pre-made video about it, right?!
The Los Angeles Lakers and the Black Mamba revealed that he will be playing in Sunday night’s game against the Toronto Raptors (anyone else think he might try and break his personal best 81-points record… just because?)
However, since the the Lakers are Hollywood, they made a triumphant 2:08 video, which will leave you saying, “I watched two minutes and eight seconds of that?!”
Basically, Kobe’s jersey flutters in a beautiful, angelic sky which then turns stormy, because of course it does! Then, the tattered top emerges still intact, and the words, “The Legend Continues” cross the screen.
Super movie trailer-y, but would you expect anything less?
Since Kobe makes no actual appearance in the video though, you can see him dunking in practice earlier this week (below).
