On Tuesday, Kobe Bryant tweeted out an update on his surgically-repaired torn Achilles tendon. The very long road to recovery for the 34-year old, five-time NBA champion took a major step (not literally) when Bryant’s cast was removed in favor of a walking boot.

It is still going to be months until we can expect to see Kobe on the floor again. However, until then, we can look forward to the legend’s continuing love of social media.
