Kobe on his rehab: "I'm progressing faster than everybody expected so I'm very happy with it." He is targeting mid August for full activity

As crazy as it sounds, even his orthopedic surgeon confirmed the news. If everything goes accordingly, Kobe will be 2 months ahead of schedule and will be on the floor for the first game of the season.
KOBE to be at full activity in 4 weeks. That means no restrictions but later stages of tendon recovery still remain. Will see him at Game 1.

Yay for medical science advancements and illegal German procedures. Thanks for keeping Kobe together.
