The Force was strong in Kobe Bryant as he returned to the Los Angeles Lakers. The superstar was introduced to the Staples Center crowd to a rousing ovation by coming out to Darth Vader’s song “Imperial March.” In Kobe’s first action since injuring his Achilles ankle last April he scored nine points and eight rebounds in his debut, but it wasn’t enough as the Toronto Raptors won the game 106-94.
