Kobe Bryant Playing in Season Opener Against Dallas Mavericks

It's official, from Kobe Bryant himself. The Lakers starting five will begin their journey together tonight!

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

And that's all she wrote. After over a week of speculation, Kobe Bryant has confirmed that he will indeed be playing against the Dallas Mavericks to open the Los Angeles Lakers season tonight. How did he confirm this? His Facebook, of course!

Feeling good enough to play tonight! I’ll use my strong midsoles for added cushion on the foot for more protection.
Looking forward to this journey as I'm sure you are.
It's Go Time.
Mamba out

More like Mamba IN I'd say. Two hours left folks. Nothing more to say here but let's go Lakers!
