Kobe Bryant is going through rehab on his torn Achilles but it seems that the injury is not stopping him from having some fun. Kobe recently posted a vine video of himself jumping straight into a pool off a 40-foot dive. You can watch the video here.

Obviously after such a devastating injury many would be afraid to do such a thing so soon, but Bryant clearly feels that his foot has healed enough and decided to push the limit. It’s also a pretty funny video, as Bryant simply jumps into the pool fully clothed and with his sneakers on. One would assume that he was simply having a stroll in L.A. when he discovered the pool and thought, “why not?”.

One way or the other, there have been no reported setbacks in Bryant’s recovery and he has kept fans up-to-date with several videos of him doing certain activities, such as running on an anti-gravity treadmill. Some believe that Kobe could be ready for opening night, but the far more realistic return date is probably somewhere around December.
