Kobe Bryant, still rehabbing from the achilles tear that he suffered at the end of last season, posted the photo below to his Facebook page on Thursday. It shows a pretty large scar from the surgery required to repair the tendon in Kobe’s left leg.

Along with the photo, Bryant also posted the following message:

”We all have those moments when we think we won’t be able to make it. I certainly had those. I accept those thoughts and let them consume me. And then they become the challenge to myself. You can actually do more and be more than you thought you could be.”

Preach, Mamba…preach.
