After 20 years, the Black Mamaba is headed to one last game before he finally hangs that Lakers jersey up for good.
And as a final farewell from his fellow athletes, Nike brought them together for a video tribute where they talk about what Kobe is to them.
That’s not all Nike is doing for the legend; on Bryant’s final game day on April 13 (April 14 in the Philippines), a customized KOBE 11 will be available for a limited time.
The graphics feature eight of Bryant’s notable stats, including: the dates of his first and last games (11.01.96 and 4.13.16), five World Championships, four All-Star MVP awards, 18 All-Star appearances, 81 points scored in a game, 20 years played in the league and 24 for his jersey number.
That’s one awesome sneaker design.
If you had a chance to talk to the legend before his last game, what would you tell him? and what would you give him as a farewell gift?
