Bryant: Achilles ‘feels really, really good’

Kobe Bryant said Monday in the Philippines that his Achilles tendon is healing well.

“My tendon feels really, really good. I was really lucky,” said Bryant, who was in Manila to promote a product. A video of Bryant’s question and answer session was posted on YouTube.

The Los Angeles Lakers guard, who was standing on a stage answering the questions, made the comment after he was asked if he would like to sit down.

Bryant tore his Achilles on April 12 and underwent surgery the following day. He credited his trainers for the success of his recovery.

“The trainers go with me everywhere. Family vacations, business trips — they’re there all the time,” he said.
