Kobe to return in November?

That rumbling you hear is the sound of Kobe Bryant getting closer to taking the court. On Tuesday, the 35-year-old practiced at full speed in 5-on-5 drills for the first time since rupturing his Achilles tendon in April. Later, Bryant said he might just make his 2013-14 debut by the end of the month. How he'll play is anyone's guess. But if he even remotely returns to form, it would be a boost for the 5-7 Los Angeles Lakers.
