Kobe Bryant is set to play his last NBA game on April 13th which has been dubbed, “Mamba Day” to celebrate the five-time NBA champion, as well as a nod to everything he has given us throughout his career.
To celebrate Kobe’s last game, Nike will be releasing a special edition Nike Kobe 11 Mamba Day iD option for a limited time beginning at tipoff of his final game on April 13th.
This Nike Kobe 11 celebrates the Black Mamba’s career by the numbers, it’s also open for personal interpretation, allowing athletes and fans to stamp their departing word for Bryant on the inner tongue.
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.
The Black and Gold Nike product seen on athletes worldwide leads into the Mamba Day celebration on April 13th, when Los Angeles hosts Utah in Bryant’s final professional game. The retail price tag is set at $225 USD.
