Kobe Bryant recently said he sees himself playing three to four more years for the Los Angeles Lakers.  That’s enough time to match Michael Jordan’s championships and get in the Karl Malone/Kareem Abdul-Jabbar neighborhood in career scoring.  The unceremonious end to Kobe’s 2012-13 season means he’ll have to fight uphill for these milestones, including coming back from the toughest injury from his career.  Kobe’s in good spirits and taking advantage of the summer’s restorative powers (remember, he played straight through last year en route to a second Olympic gold), including enjoying the game of football that has influenced him since his childhood in Italy.  Included in recent photos he’s tweeted from a soccer-centric vacation was a shot in the ‘Venice Beach’ Nike Kobe 8 alongside Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho and wearing the ‘Mambacurial’ in a shot posed with the CBF’s up and coming Leandro Damiao.  Tons of foot power in this post, so click through for more images and stick with Sneaker News because the Kobe 9 isn’t too far off.

Kobe Bryant‘s rehab seems to be ahead of schedule because he believes he can be back for the regular season opener later this year. The fast-moving process could be in part due to the special “Medical Mamba” sneaker that Nike made just for the Black Mamba to help with his rehab. Although a clear shot can’t be taken from this photo of Kobe putting in work several days ago, it does look like the Nike Kobe 8 in a high-top build, presumably to protect his ailing Achilles. Thoughts on the Nike Kobe returning to mid-top form for the first time since the Nike Zoom Kobe III?

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.

Throughout the history of the NBA, no other ‘sneaker history’ is as eventful and engrossing as that of Kobe Bryant. Sure, MJ had the Air Jordan line and LeBron James is currently etching out his own legacy, but Kobe Bryant’s timeline of kicks goes up and down, left and right, covering two signature lines with two brands and a jaw-dropping load of Player Exclusives. Starting with his iconoclastic adidas The Kobe signature line, his stint rocking Nike Basketball and Air Jordan PEs, the relatively unknown period during which Kobe rocked Reebok PEs (yes, the Answer IV and the Question), and stopping at his current Nike Kobe 8 model, there’s a lot to talk about. This sick showcase of Kobe Bryant’s kicks covers a good portion of what’s been laid out, and what’s more impressive is that these shoes are not only game-worn, but also autographed. Flip through below and let us know which of the shoes featured below gets you excited the most!
