Kobe Bryant explains what ‘Mamba Mentality’ is while revealing his new Nike shoe

Kobe Bryant explains what ‘Mamba Mentality’ is while revealing his new Nike shoe

Mamba, and colors and shoes OH MY! Kobe Bryant is set to release his next Nike shoe on Aug. 24, a fitting date considering he’ll forever be linked to his career with the Los Angeles Lakers wearing both 8 and 24. It appears to be a mid-top version of his most recent shoe, the Kobe AD, though design-wise the shoe looks markedly different. It’s unclear if this will be the next “edition” of his annual shoe release with Nike, though as it stands it’s being marketed as a new version of the first post-retirement shoe he released last year, nicknamed “Mamba Mentality.” The theme of...

Is Kyrie Irving using Kobe Bryant’s Career as a Blueprint?

Is Kyrie Irving using Kobe Bryant’s Career as a Blueprint?

Kyrie Irving has made sure to keep the NBA, the media, and the fans in a chaotic tizzy this summer with his trade request and the whirlwind that, subsequently, ensued. The latest bit of news for Kyrie Irving, which is a lot less dramatic, is the release of his brand new sneaker. Kyrie collaborated with Nike and his long time basketball idol, and now mentor, Kobe Bryant on the creation of the new Nike Kyrie 3 “Bruce Lee” shoes. These sneakers were directly inspired by a pair of Kobe V “Bruce Lee” shoes that Irving wore when he was 17 years old for a big game. Kyrie explains in the...

Kobe Bryant and Kyrie Irving collaborated on a pair of absolutely fire Nike shoes

Kyrie is definitely feeling his inner #MambaMentality lately. Kyrie Irving and Kobe Bryant haven’t been coy about the friendship they’ve been developing over the years, something that’s come to light over the past several months. It began with Kyrie revealing he spoke with Kobe about the superstar dynamic he had with LeBron James back in June, and was confirmed by Kobe shortly thereafter. Both players are under the Nike umbrella, and it certainly seems like Irving has been honing in on his own #MambaMentality as of late. The two collaborated on a new KYRIE3 colorway, inspired by...

Lakers Podcast: Why is Lonzo Ball so polarizing?

Lakers Podcast: Why is Lonzo Ball so polarizing?

It’s a bit weird, frankly. NBA Twitter in the middle of August can be a dark, desolate (and at times angry) place. Very rarely will discussions end with the acknowledgement that truth typically lies somewhere in the middle, and with guys as polarizing as Lonzo Ball and Kobe Bryant, this trend gets taken to the furthest extremes. To talk about this and plenty of other stuff, we welcomed BBall Breakdown’s James Holas (@SnottieDrippen). The conversation began with Lonzo and the reception he’s gotten both from Lakers fans and from other fan bases. How much of the distaste has to do with...
