Often in life, inundated with our many daily tasks and various priorities, it becomes easy to take the simplest truths for granted.
Perhaps you lose sight of the fact that you have a house and a job amidst all of your worries? Perhaps you forget that you have family and/or friends that care for you?
For Los Angeles Lakers superstar and five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant, having spent the past eight months rehabilitating his torn achilles, the simple fact that he gets to play basketball seems to have been the missing ingredient.
My goodness it feels good to be back and playing! Easy to take it all for granted.. God I LOVE playing this game #blessed

Bryant didn’t have the greatest game in his debut on Sunday, tallying only nine points on 2-9 from the field with eight turnovers in 28 minutes of play against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night.
Still, his performance was not all bad and, in some ways, better than expected.
His shooting and turnover woes can be mostly attributed to trying to regain confidence in his body and learn its limitations in real gameplay. On the upside, he filled out the stat sheet, collecting eight rebounds, four assists and two steals.
Bryant and the Lakers will be tipping off against the Phoenix Suns at home in Staples Center at 10:30 PM ET.
The game against the Suns will be Bryant’s second game back from injury. Hopefully he shows continued improvement.
