If Kobe Bryant’s career was translated onto screenplays and feature films, the first four installments would be dubbed Kobe Bryant: The Second Coming, Fallen Hero, Road To Redemption, and Rise To The Top. Kobe Bryant began his NBA career representing adidas when the German brand landed the high-school phenom with a massive six-year contract. When his contract was over, Nike picked him up rather swiftly, until they hit a road-bump with the sexual assault scandal in Denver. Kobe was kept under wraps for some time, rocking Nike and Air Jordan PEs, but it was finally time to unveil the Nike Zoom Kobe signature line with the Air Zoom Kobe 1. From ’96 to ’11, we’ve seen Kobe through his ups and downs, and in this great feature mustered up by list-friendly Complex, we can revisit Kobe Bryant’s best sneaker moments of his basketball career. Was it his first ring with Shaq? Or how about when he teabagged Dwight Howard with a sack of kryptonite in the Huarache 2k4? Check out some of Kobe best moments below and head to Complex for the full feature.

Whoa Whoa Whoa... Did Kobe dunk on Dwight Howard?? Where have I been, I have never seen that pic til now. +2 for Kobe
lmao you a lame ass....and this why kobe haters are just hating for no reason....people dont even know half of this mans accomplishments or his sheer greatness especially when he still had his athleticism
Well Dwight was a joke at the time though so nothing to be surprised. Actually he's still garbage compare to the 90's centeres.
does that matter? and i dont believe tornoto was the worst team in the NBA at the time....not dead last....and he shot the ball with a high percentage...instead of shooting the ball 81 times for 81 points
