So there’s some serious concern that the Los Angeles Lakers might miss the Playoffs altogether – it all comes down to the final few games of the regular season. To put away any doubt of missing the postseason, Kobe and crew just need to win out, and last night’s gutsy win over the Portland Blazers proved that sometimes that extra 10% and the “will to win” do make a difference. For last night’s crucial game, Kobe Bryant debuted the Nike Kobe 8 Elite in Black/Gold – a shoe that as of now won’t release until June, which is separate from the release dates of the KD and LeBron Elite releases. If the Lakers manage to pull into the Playoffs, do you think Nike will push forward the release date? Check out the high-def gallery of Kobe below and stay tuned for updates.

Man, screw Kobe Bryant and his shoes. I can't wait for this guy to retire, so his annoying fans can also go away as well. He has one good game,  then suddenly people forget that he is the main reason that the Lakers were a rudderless ship for much of the season. He is the reason that Mike Brown isn't there, and was behind much of the beef between he and Dwight Howard. 

He is the most overrated player, by his fans, in NBA history. After he retires, the game wont miss him.

Good riddance.

Now let's play some TEAM basketball.

I've never seen on court photos this clear on this site..hopefully this is a sign


Pretty sure kobe will be wearing these shoes for the rest of the season and try to give them a rep like MJs famed colorways

Kobe must have broken them out early because he might not make the playoffs this year hahahaha

All of Kobe's numbered signature shoes look exactly the same. From three all the way to eight. I can almost guarantee the Kobe 9 is going to be lowtop with some sort of scale pattern and a heel plate with his logo or signature. Kobe sucks and so do his shoes.

@Longstroke you might be the dumbest NBA fan in the history of basketball 

1. Most overrated player? numbers don't lie, he's earned every ounce of hype he's received

2. He's the main reason the Lakers were rudderless ship? Oh ok, so let's not talk about injuries occurring to a core that was trying to mold to each other. Lets also not factor in the fact that there were games Dwight Howard missed more than half of his free throws that could have easily shifted the games to wins instead of losses. Lets also not forget that the Lakers defense is no where near consistent on rotation, but i guess you can blame Kobe

3. The beef between him and Dwight Howard? So it's Kobe fault that Dwight said he want's Kobe to be tough on him so he can mold him into a franchise player? 


4. SHUT UP AND NEVER POST ABOUT BASKETBALL AGAIN. STICK TO MAKING COMMENTS ABOUT THE SHOES

@Longstroke You're such an idiot. There was never any beef between him and Dwight and Brown was just a bad coaching choice from the start. And Kobe is the reason why they are in position for the playoffs. If it wasn't for him, they would be out of the Playoff picture. And he has had MANY great games this season! So stop your hating and don't let your ignorance stop you from seeing that Kobe IS a legend and will be missed globally when he retires from the NBA!

@TruthAlways stupidest comment ive read in awhile, especially considering the kobe 3 is neither lowtop nor featuring a heal plate. your just hating to hate, and people like you polluting these boards is getting really fucking old. we are just talking about his SHOES are some of the best performance models ever, mainly the KBIV and VI in my opinion

@CK16 I could give a fuck about you liking my opinion. You mad cause I berated your hero? Like I said, FUCK Kobe and them ugly ass shoes!
