When the image of a gigantic lizard attacking an Asian metropolis comes to mind, one would quickly think of Godzilla. There’s a new colossal reptile out on the prowl, the Black Mamba, and it appears to be an unstoppable force. Niketown in Beijing, China is paying tribute to Kobe Bryant and the Nike Zoom Kobe V with an oversized monument of the Black Mamba snake, and despite being considerably smaller than Godzilla was, the Black Mamba will certainly take the country by storm. The snake sits in the main foyer for all to admire, and you can see a display of a deconstructed Zoom Kobe V. China is already a huge supporter of the NBA and basketball as a sport, and this prodigious display is only a testament to their admiration of Kobe Bryant and the NBA’s global efforts. via nikebasketball on twitter.
