The Sights, Sounds, Stories & Stats from Kobe Bryant’s return (12.8.13)

Although the early Christmas gift was a little disappointing, Laker fans were still thankful and will end 2013 on a much happier note than they would have without the early present.

For the past week, the sports world, Laker fans and maybe you, have been acting like a kid on the night before Christmas, staring at a specific box under the Christmas tree, knowing exactly what it is and shaking from the anxiety of wanting to see the desired object that will replace your existing inferior ones.  To your surprise, your parents allow you to open the box early, you tear off the shiny prestigious packaging and with unrealistic expectations and fantasy thoughts, you expect the gift to be as great as it was marketed.  But, it didn’t come with batteries, a piece seems to be missing, you look at it, confirm that it looks like the greatness you expected but plays like a factory defect.  You then calm down, come to your senses, face reality and accept it is what is and that’s still better than what you had and it represents something much bigger and better and for that you should be thankful.

NIKE COMMERCIAL: KOBE COMEBACK

If he never got up, he’d still be called a hero.
And if he hadn’t stepped back on to the court, he’d still be a Hall of Famer.
And if he didn’t hit those free throws, he would still go down in basketball history.
And if he never came back to the game, he’d be a living legend.
But he wouldn’t be Kobe Bryant.
