For the first time in a long time Kobe Bryant graced the court with his peers. The practice was heralded near and far on media outlets. Though the practice wasn’t recorded a few sources at the Lakers practice put out clips for the world to see. The Mamba looked to have good movement with his cuts and a reasonable amount of lift on his jumpshots…which he drained by the way. On his feet were a black and purple colorway on his Nike Kobe 8 signature. With his return to the court presumably soon barring any setbacks, hopefully Bryant can get with the Nike Basketball R&D and iron out the Nike Kobe 9. Stay tuned for more on the Black Mamba.
