Kobe Bryant and family give holiday greeting in purple and gold

Kobe Bryant and his family are celebrating the holidays in purple and gold.

On Saturday, Bryant's wife, Vanessa, posted a family picture with a Christmas message.

Along with their daughters Natalia and Gianna, the Bryants are clothed in the Lakers' traditional colors.

Bryant recently signed a two-year extension with the Lakers that will keep him with the team for 20 straight years.

After eight months off, recovering from an Achilles' tendon tear, Bryant returned to the floor Sunday night in a loss to the Toronto Raptors.

Bryant seemed rusty, but more importantly to the Lakers, he looked healthy.
