Kobe Bryant was back on the practice floor on Sunday in preparation for the start of the season. A bruised lower leg had kept Bryant from participating in LA’s final four preseason games, and augmented fears that Father Time had caught up with the five-time champion.

This isn’t a new Kobe development.
