Nike To Release “Mamba Day” iD Option During Kobe’s Last NBA Game

Believe it or not, Kobe Bryant’s last NBA game is just a few days away. April 13th has been dubbed “Mamba Day”, marking the five-time champion’s final battle on the hardwood after two decades of blood, sweat and tears. Right at tip-off Nike will celebrate Kobe’s incredible career with the Mamba Day design option on NIKEiD, which features a black/gold graphic comprised of numbers that detail all his achievements since he started his journey in 1996. The Kobe 11 “Mamba Day” iD will be available for a limited time right at tip-off during the Wednesday game between the Lakers and Jazz, so get a look at some additional photos as well as the number breakdown below.

The final NIKEiD shoe of Bryant’s professional career will feature a graphic highlighting eight notable stats that have fueled the love and hate, including: the dates of his first and last games (11.01.96 and 4.13.16), five World Championships, four All-Star MVP awards, 18 All-Star appearances, 81 points scored in a game, 20 years played in the league and 24 for his jersey number.
