VIDEO: Kobe Bryant's first basket since the Achilles injury

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Pump fake. Pump fake. Left-handed banker off the glass. That's how Kobe Bryant scored his first basket of the 2013-14 season for the Los Angeles Lakers. It came against DeMar DeRozan after he had missed his first two shots of the game. While the rust has been there in the early goings of Kobe's return from the Achilles injury, his playmaking and presence have been solid.

These weren't his first points though. His first point of the season came at the free throw line after being fouled on a reverse layup attempt. He missed the first freebie but connected on the second one.
