Nike Brings Back Kobe Bryant and LeBron James Puppets

The Nike puppets are back to celebrate Kobe Bryant’s jersey retirement by releasing three videos rehashing its old puppet campaign with LeBron James.

Nike originally released the campaign in 2009, when Kobe would tamper with James about not having an NBA championship. Since then, James has earned him three rings, while Bryant ended his career with five before retiring in 2016.

Check out the newest Nike puppets ads below. As a reminder, Nike will also be releasing a special edition Air Force 1 Low “Black Mamba” iD option tonight.

Try to imagine the weight of having two jerseys as inspiring and accomplished as number 8 and number 24. Kobe saved us all from that burden.

Who’s Uncle Charlie?

Number 8 and number 24 finally have time to pursue all of the hobbies they love to do.
