Kobe Bryant is a five-time NBA champion, former MVP, and one of the greatest players of all time. What may not be known to a few is he's actually the second coming of Jesus, here to lead our sinful, non-basketball playing asses into salvation. Well, that's not actually confirmed, but if it was, fans would be able to unanimously believe in James Harden's prediction.

Harden told ThePostGame that he thinks Bryant might be reborn into the 20-year-old Kobe of prodigious lore: "I don’t know what he’s going to come back like...I know he’s been working. We’ve talked a few times and he’s ready. He’s 20-year-old Kobe."

And it would be extremely dope if that were to happen. But here's the thing: When even Bryant obscenely confident self knows, "There are certain things that my body can’t do that I used to be able to do," then it's time to lower expectations a bit. Count on a good Kobe coming in 2014-15, but perhaps not the dominating one.
