The Lakers Have Announced Kobe’s Return Date With A Bizarrely Over-The-Top Video

On April 12, 2013, it honestly looked like Kobe Bryant’s career might have ended. Drug-induced Facebook rants, gross surgery pictures, butt wiping conundrums — we genuinely thought we’d seen the last of one of the NBA’s all-time greats.

But like an ugly-ass mean-mugging Phoenix, he rose from the ashes (thanks in huge part to his famous work ethic and insatiable lust for greatness, which kept him up at all hours working on his game).

So how do the Lakers tell the world he’s coming back? This ridiculous video of Kobe’s jersey, gently swaying in the wind as if it was the American flag after the Battle of Iwo Jima. It’s almost like the trailer for a Superman movie, except if Superman was an egotistical, bitter, anti-social, over-priced shooting guard with a reconstructed achilles tendon. Mark your calendar: December 8th against the Raptors.

Duh, that’s the team he dropped 81 points on in 2006 AAAND more recently beat at the buzzer last February.
