Kobe Bryant claims he’s “shattered” Achilles Recovery Time.

Kobe says he has shattered Achilles recovery time.

Kobe Bryant was expected to be out six to nine months after rupturing his Achilles tendon back in April. Bryant is recovering a lot faster than expected. Not only does he have a chance to be ready for the start of the regular season, he could be ready by training camp. This news would be shocking if it were anybody else, but Bryant is known for being inhuman.

Bryant spoke with NBA.com about the recovery process.

“The surgical procedure was different […] and because of that the recovery has been different,” Bryant said in the southern city of Shenzhen. “The normal timetable for recovery from an Achilles, we’ve shattered that. Three-and-a-half months I can already walk just fine, I’m lifting weights with the Achilles just fine and that’s different. So we don’t know what that timetable is going to be. It’s kind of new territory for us all.”’

This is news Lakers Nation has been looking for after Howard left them in the dust.
