Even before the man himself retired, there were number of young bucks given the title of “The Next Jordan”. Vince. T-Mac. Penny. Stack. Harold frickin’ Miner. The list goes on and on, and they’ve all stepped up to the plate and fallen short of the glory of Jordan. Another Jordan-comparison was made to a scrawny, arrogant, didn’t-know-his-role right outta High School rookie back in ’96…and the expectations of MJ-proportions then has become a truth in present day. We’re not here to debate who the better player was – Kobe or MJ – but Jordan Brand is definitely giving Bryant the props he deserves. When he was in endorsee-limbo a few years back, Kobe was seen on court with some SICK Air Jordan PEs. While this upcoming Air Jordan VI (6) Lakers isn’t exactly a Kobe PE, it’s clear JB is is still showing their love. Check out these new detailed images after the jump. via Kinstor.
