Kobe Bryant posts video jumping off 40-foot diving board

Will Kobe Bryant be ready in time for the Lakers' season opener?


If his first Vine post is any indication, it could be all systems go for the Black Mamba, who suffered a torn Achilles' tendon on April 12 and was expected to miss six to nine months.


In a video he tweeted Thursday night, Bryant can be seen jumping into a pool from 40 feet high...feet first of course.


Take a look at the video, and judge for yourself:
