Kobe Bryant welcomed Paul Rodriguez into the rare club of athletes to have 10 signature models in their name with Nike. That list includes a number of world-famous basketball superstars, but P-Rod is the first skater to hold that honor with the Swoosh. Kobe Bryant and Paul Rodriguez have always admired each other’s craft from afar, and each has appeared in the other’s commercials from time to time. There’s no word yet on if the Los Angeles natives will have some Lakers-themed takes coming to the Nike P-Rod 10, but we’ll have to wait and see.
