Kobe’s Trainer Worried About Mental State
Lakers trainer Gary Vitti estimated (Kobe) Bryant will return within six to nine months, making it possible he will be back at the beginning of the 2013-14 season starting in late October.
As Bryant begins this process, his personal trainer, Tim Grover, spoke with certainty on one thing regarding his client’s injury.
“The battle with this kind of injury is it’s going to be from the neck up,” Grover said. “If he decides he wants to do this, it will get done.
“I’m not worried about the physical part of it. I’m worried about the mental state.”
