NBA welcomes Kobe Bryant back to court with tribute video

The video shows clips of Kobe Bryant throughout his NBA career.

It's hard to imagine the NBA doing something like this for an active player, but Kobe Bryant is no normal active player. In commemoration of his return to the court nearly eight months after he suffered a torn Achilles in a late-season game against the Golden State Warriors, the NBA released this video of Bryant shooting free throws through the years. Kobe will start as the Lakers host the Toronto Raptors at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBATV.
