Los Angeles is a major Nike Basketball hotspot thanks to Kobe Bryant and the Nike Zoom Kobe VI. Although Kobe Bryant is the only Laker player with a Nike signature shoe, most of the Lakers notables are decked out in Nike gear, like Lamar Odom, who is known for wearing some of the slickest PEs, Shannon Brown, who got a special PE of the Nike Zoom Kobe V for the 2010 Dunk Contest, and other key players on the squad. Here we have a nice collection of game-issued Nike Basketball sneakers, each pair autographed by the player who intended to wear them; two Kobe VIs for Kobe along with one each for Brown and Luke Walton, Andrew Bynum’s Zoom Hyperfuse, and what might be the cream of the crop, Lamar Odom’s Zoom Hyperfuse 2011. Want a pair of these? Check out all six below because we’ve got a detailed gallery as well as direct links to the auctions from nytryder8 on eBay.
