Oh, my stars and garters. He's going to play! It's a miracle!
After news leaked that he was unsure if he would play in the season opener because of a foot injury, Kobe Bryant is going to start, just like he always was, against the Mavericks. The news was broken by ... Kobe himself on Facebook. He's too cool for Twitter.
Feeling good enough to play tonight! I'll use my strong midsoles for added cushion on the foot for more protection.
Looking forward to this journey as I'm sure you are.
It's Go Time.
Bryant had said earlier today he was 85 percent good to go.
