07:29 AM ET 12.05 | Not so fast? Kobe Bryant has ruled himself out for the Los Angeles Lakers' road game against the Sacramento Kings on Friday, the 18-year veteran told ESPNLosAngeles.com on Wednesday. While Bryant won't be making his long-awaited return from Achilles surgery against the Kings, after two consecutive days of practices, Bryant said he is moving into game-to-game territory when considering his comeback. Meaning, playing in the Lakers' home game against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday is still a possibility for Bryant. "It feels that way," Bryant said [Wednesday]. ... "This is the second day now that I've been able to get out there and move around and play and play pretty well and it felt like I could do anything that I wanted to do out there on the floor, so, we progress to (Thursday). On to tomorrow."

Who cares? He will shoot this team out of any chance.

He looks like he is passing in some highlights that they're showing. If he is passing than players Nick Young will be useless. Nick needs the ball to helter skelter.

Translation: Pass the ball to Kobe, bro.

LOL, how can you pass the ball to Kobe if he isn't in the game. I say Kobe should wait until the start of next year. There is no friggin hurry!! By the way, have the Clippers raised that Pacific division banner yet?? :-)

Every time they try the Lakers try to cover them up with STAYD12 posters!

I thought the Lakers fans burn them posters long ago. I'm serious, did the Clippers ever raise that Pacific Division banner??
