Longtime Lakers owner Gary Vitti sat down with Mike Trudell of the Lakers official website last week to give a reasonably positive update and the status of the two, and while it might not sign off on allowing us to predict that the duo will return to MVP form, things are at least looking better than they did last summer. Or fall. Or winter. Or spring. From Trudells interview , which is a must-read beyond the Kobe and Nash discussions: MT: Kobe is of course coming off the left Achilles tear on April 12, 2013, and the small knee fracture on Dec. 17, 2013, both of which have completely healed. Bryant said at his camp in Santa Barbara that hes fully healthy and weighs 215 pounds, his typical playing weight in January. Its pretty tough, for me at least having been around him since 2008, http://newsweekblog.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-dating-point-to-launch-its-newest.html to bet against him. Vitti: Youd be crazy to bet against him.
