Some athletes have hydraulic fluid in their veins, and that still describes the Lakers' Bryant, even as he struggles to work out some significant kinks.
I always feel fleeced after going to Staples Center; the prices are just enormous. This might be the worst value in America, and that includes the Kardashian sisters and overpriced Bavarian sedans.

Kobe Bryant scored nine points to go with eight rebounds and four assists in his season debut for the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night, and he believes his return will not disrupt the team's chemistry. "Chemistry will be fine. It's not like we were gangbusters before," Bryant said. "Guys know how to play. We'll be fine." Bryant is comparing the next few weeks to a preseason schedule. "I've always had sucky preseasons. Always," Bryant said. "It's just a matter of just kind of building your legs, finding your rhythm. Now there's a little bit more pressure obviously than in a preseason game. The crowd's a little bit more worried for me in between games to get ready."

Kobe Bryant is expected to play under a minutes restriction to begin his return from a torn Achilles. "I don't think it's a magical number," Mike D'Antoni said after practice Saturday when asked about a minute range for Bryant. "He's totally well and ready to go. I think he'll be limited by his wind and ability to be able to take the pounding. So, I would be surprised if more than in the twenties. It shouldn't be any more than that." Jodie Meeks is the member of the Los Angeles Lakers that will have his minutes impacted most by Bryant's return. Robert Sacre said Bryant also played well in practice this week. "He never lost anything," Sacre said. "He's pretty much been the same player the whole time. It's been really good to have him work in practice and look like nothing ever happened."

Kobe Bryant had the ball in his hands and the crowd on its feet for the final possession of the first half in his comeback game. After nearly eight months away, Bryant was grateful to be in position to take such a shot for the Los Angeles Lakers, even if it was rudely handed back to him. With his 18th NBA season finally underway, Bryant is confident he'll get past his opening-week jitters and shakiness while his teammates figure out how they fit around him. ''It's the uncertainty of knowing how it's going to take,'' Bryant said after a light workout Monday at the Lakers' training complex.
