Kobe Bryant Returns, And His First Shot Was Awful (Video)

Kobe Bryant returns - Bad Shot

For the first time since tearing the rotator cuff in his right shoulder back in January, Kobe Bryant stepped onto the court to take part in an NBA game, and the results were not pretty.

Kobe started the game and played a total of 12 minutes, going 1-for-5 from the field for just five points, zero rebounds, zero assists, and two personal fouls.

Was he rusty following his eight-month layoff? Judging by his first three-point attempt, which bounced off the top of the backboard, I’d say so:

Good thing this is only Game 1 of the preseason, so Kobe will have plenty of time to straighten out his shot.
