This is great! We heard a few rumors but now it’s confirmed that the Lakers are healing up – especially #24. Kobe says he doesn’t have any linger effects in his back…

L.A. Times: The Lakers looked active and spry, and Kobe Bryant reported no lingering effects from the back spasms that plagued him a week ago. In fact, all of the players enjoyed the extra rest.

“You don’t know how happy we were to be able to close the [Utah] series in six games and not go to a Game 7,” Pau Gasol said. “It gave us these extra couple days to prepare ourselves, to disconnect and to freshen up.”
