Between now and the start of the NBA’s regular season, we are bound to hear a myriad of different reports concerning the status of Kobe Bryant’s achilles tendon.
The most recent update from Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News has Bryant being a few weeks away from being able to run at a 100%.
Kobe Bryant continued his rehab on his surgically repaired left Achilles tendon, as expected, the latest involving running at 75 percent of his body weight on a treadmill. Lakers athletic trainer Gary Vitti expects Bryant remains a “few weeks away” before advancing to full-weight bearing running, though he acknowledged that’s a “nebulous term.” …
“He’s doing well and has had no setbacks,” Vitti said Thursday at his trainer’s office at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo in a wide-ranging interview with this newspaper. “There’s no projected date. He’ll be ready when he’s ready. Nobody has a crystal ball on this thing.”
Bryant must first complete full-weight bearing runn

Yes, folks, Kobe Bryant once jumped over a moving Aston Martin. No, it was not real.
Some guy apparently did not get the memo, because he tried the feat. Needless to say, his effort involved much lower ups than Bryant’s, a much cheaper car and a much different result.
