Of Nike Basketball’s ‘Big Three’, Kobe Bryant is undoubtedly the most accomplished and decorated of the bunch. Five NBA Championships, a slew of awards in the form of MVPs, All-Star Game MVPs, Scoring Titles, Gold Medals, and more, and a fourth-quarter ferocity that will have any defender wobbling at the knees. Kobe’s on a mission for that elusive sixth ring that would match him with the man he’s been compared with his entire career, and even as he approaches 35 years of age, when most NBA stars are mere shells of their former selves, Kobe has displayed an insane longevity that’ll have him among the league’s best for years to come. He’s the type of athlete that’ll get talked about fifty years down the line, making him a true pioneer of Black History awareness in the present and the future. The Nike Kobe 8 ‘BHM’ is slated for a release alongside the other two BHM models on 1/26, so peep the official Nike images below and let us know if Kobe has a sixth ring in his future.
