Well if you look at both, you would be able to see it.
A few theories include:
Lakers being ranked 12th and him 25th best.
Kobe being ranked 12th last season, but 25th now.
Or what Kobe says is just his pet's birthday. Who knows?
Another theory is that it's the date he's coming back - Christmas Day against the Heat
he says "1225" is in reference to his pet's birthday, per the Los Angeles Daily News' Mark Medina.
I don't believe it though hahah
-It's his pets birthday
-It's the rankings of the Lakers and Kobe himself
-It's the most likely date for his return
One big coincidence... or is the rankings and everything some kind of setup to hype his return? haha just thinking out loud.
Clearly the day he is aiming to come back. But that is not to far away so maybe not...LOL
My guess is 12/25. 2 months away seem not too far-fetched for Kobe if everything I've heard about his recovery is true so far.
1+2+2+5 = 10"
