The Lakers and Celtics have been bitter rivals for decades, and for the 2011 NBA Finals, there could very well be a rematch of last year’s contest. Both Kobe Bryant and Rajon Rondo are the backcourt leaders for their respective teams but in two distinct roles – Kobe being the dominant scorer and Rajon being the pass-master and floor general. During last night’s NBA games, Rajon and Kobe both had something in common – they both wore all-new colorways of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI. Kobe Bryant wore a similar pair to the ‘Home’ Concord colorway that features a silver midsole and heel-cap, while Rajon matched his Celtics’ unit with the Zoom Kobe VI Rice H.S. PE. A sign of respect for Kobe, or just an attempt to match his uniform with the best low-cut performance basketball shoe on the market? Check out Kobe and Rondo in NBA action after the jump and let us know which Kobe VI colorway you like better! via ESPN.
