Before the most recent series for which Miami just got their rings, the last NBA Finals to go 7 games was the 2010 edition of that epic Lakers/Celtics rivalry. The results were switched from their meeting in ’08, with Kobe Bryant capturing his fifth championship in a couple of special Nike Zoom Kobe V makeups. The ‘Big Stage’ Zoom Kobe 5s were something of a precursor to the elegance we’ve come to associate with the Nike Basketball Elite Series, black and white colorways going the elegant route with tonal graphics effectively invisible from a distance as well as golden accents. These pairs are quite rare and given that they were released separately as regional exclusives, it’s that much less common to see them together. Click through to see the ‘Big Stage’ pack in all its glory, let us know if you think the occasion will arise for another NBA Finals Nike Kobe shoe in the future, then click to see what they sold for from dynamiccases on eBay.
