Now is the time of year we’re used to see Kobe Bryant celebrating an NBA Championship and raising the banner at Staples Center along with new colorways of his Nike Basketball signatures to commemorate the achievement.

They can keep the Mamba off the court, but you can’t keep him away from Nike Basketball retailers who’re about to release two of the most compelling colorways from this entire product cycle on Saturday. The Nike Zoom Kobe VI‘s Flywire-embedded TPU uppers are perfect for complex palettes and the ‘Lakers Gradient’ and ‘3-D Gradient’ editions each offer their own take on mastering multicolored snakescales.
