A pair of Nike Kobe IX sneakers game worn by Kobe Bryant during the 2014–15 NBA season.
When Kobe Bryant was drafted into the NBA at 17 years old, he did not celebrate with an elaborate draft party. Instead, Bryant reportedly went to the gym. 17 years later, when he tore his achilles, Kobe was not carried off the court by his teammates. With a face displaying agony, he instead hobbled to the free throw line and made both shots, touching nothing but net.
An embodiment of the competitive spirit, it was Bryant’s ability to attack each game with an unparalleled desire to win that made him one of this generation’s greatest. When Kobe retired in 2016, he did so as a 5-time NBA champion, a league MVP, a 2-time scoring champion and a 12-time All-Defensive team selection. A complete player and an ambassador of the game, Bryant was the face of the Los Angeles Lakers and one of the biggest names in the NBA during his 20-year career.
On December 7, 2014, Bryant — wearing this exact pair of Kobe IX sneakers — recorded 14 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds in a 104–87 Lakers defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Pelicans.
