Jim Buss Expects Bryant Back in Preseason
Jim Buss’ most interesting wager of the week was placed outside a casino.
The Lakers vice president indicated Thursday that Kobe Bryant might be even further ahead of schedule in his return from a torn Achilles’ tendon than the star himself indicated last week.
“I would bet a lot of money on him coming back in the preseason,” Buss told NBA TV during the broadcast of the Lakers’ 72-68 summer league victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at the Thomas & Mack Center. “He’s going to come back when he is right. I see him coming back at the beginning of this season.”
