Did you ever think Kobe and LeBron would ever play on the same darn team? Kobe’s competitive ferocity has him fuming over his Round 2 exit, while LeBron James will try to capitalize on the ‘third time’s a charm’ proverb as he laces up for Game 1 tomorrow night, but this August, Black Mamba will join forces with LeBron (and a collective group of the NBA’s best) for the 2012 Olympics in London. Though the Games are weeks away, the actual USAB festivities will begin earlier with the World Basketball Festival, so Nike’s gonna let you in on the Red/White/Blue goodies this Saturday, as the LeBron 9 Low and Kobe VII ‘USAB’ joints hit Nike Basketball retailers like 21 Mercer. Will the two gel harmoniously to begin home the Gold come August? Let us know which ‘USA’ colorway you like better and if you’ve already decided, see which of the two is available now on eBay.
