Back in the fall, Vandal-A released a clever t-shirt design that reinterpreted a classic Biggie Smalls verse in a way that definitely appealed to the sneakerhead/Jordan-centric masses. With the Lakers about to enter another NBA Finals showdown tonight, an alternate version of the shirt has been created to honor Kobe Bryant, who is also quite familiar with performing like Mike, and has the rings to prove it. The new version of the ‘Perform Like Mike’ design features a black shirt with purple and gold Lakers-inspired print. If you’re a fan of the Black Mamba, you can grab yours now from Vandal-A just in time for the NBA Finals and Kobe’s quest for a fifth championship.
