NBA star Kobe Bryant made his first appearance of the season for the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

The 35-year-old returned to the Lakers' line up after an eight-month layoff due to an Achilles injury.

Bryant, who recently signed a new $48.5million contract extension, could not stop his side from losing 106-94 against the Toronto Raptors.

He was however greeted with a warm reception before the game, while entering the court to Star Wars' theme song.

Bryant played just 20 minutes of the Lakers' defeat as head coach Mike D'Antoni is keen on easing his star player back into his side.

Watch Bryant's entrance to the court at the Staples Center, which was brought to our attention by Bleacher Report, above.
