Kobe Bryant to return by preseason?

We know Kobe Bryant is no normal basketball player. But is he really "inhuman?" That's what Lakers vice president Jim Buss said to NBA TV on Thursday, indicating that the superstar might make it back for the preseason -- just months after tearing his Achilles tendon late in the 2012-13 campaign. Just what should we expect from Bryant in 2013-14?
