The beginning of Kobe Bryant’s quest to write his last chapter likely will not take place in the comfortable Staples Center surroundings. Or a contentious road arena.

Instead, that might happen in Hawaii where the Lakers will play at the beginning of training camp, including two exhibition games against the Utah Jazz in Honolulu on October 4 and 6. The Lakers have expected Bryant to return at some point in training camp as soon as he had surgery in late January to treat a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder that sidelined him for the rest of the 2014-15 season.
