Kobe Bryant Instagram Post Celebrates His Return to the Court (Pic)

Kobe Bryant Instagram

A Kobe Bryant Instagram post over the weekend let the world know that the star is back in action after being sidelined for much of last season with a shoulder injury. According to his caption, he’s back and ready for action in his upcoming 20th season. We also get a rare shot of Kobe Bryant smiling in this post, which is almost more remarkable than the 20 seasons.

Here’s the pic:

You can also tell by the comments that it’s Kobe’s bday, and I’m sure, for the man who has everything, the best gift he could have gotten was a return to the court and a chance to compete.

Considering his work ethic, I’m hoping we can see him playing at full-speed or near it in the next couple weeks. Welcome back, Black Mamba.
