In a sign that Kobe Bryant moves the needle, I conducted three radio interviews the day after his return in the Lakers’ loss Sunday to the Toronto Raptors.

The outlets all varied from KABC, CBS Sports and Yahoo! Sports Radio. But they all hit on the same theme regarding Bryant’s struggles in his first game since shattering his left Achilles tendon eight months ago. Take a listen.
