Los Angeles Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell puts his arm around Kobe Bryant during a photo shoot on Sept. 30, 2015 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Russell was born the same year Kobe debuted with LA—1996. Kobe set the record for most seasons played with one team Wednesday night, the minute he stepped on the floor for the Lakers, his 20th season with the club. He also passed former L.A. center Wilt Chamberlain in minutes played for fourth on the all-time list. (Andrew D. Bernstein for SI)

Jordan Brand is Rumored to Retro Kobe PE Editions of the Air Jordan 3 & 8
_______________

▪️After leaving Adidas in 2002, Kobe enjoyed a full year of sneaker free agency where he was courted by the likes of Nike, Reebok and Jordan Brand. We ultimately know that The Black Mamba signed with Nike and never looked back, but some of his best sneaker moments came during his year of freedom.
▪️Alongside the Nike Huarache 2K4, which Kobe rocked regularly, he also donned the Air Jordan 3, 7, 8, 11, 12, even wearing 17’s for a few games. That said, two of the most popular Lakers edition sneakers were the Jordan 3 and 8, which are rumored to be the to pairs in the pack.
▪️The pack that is rumored to release in February (During All-Star Weekend) has a $500 price tag and will almost assuredly be limited edition so start saving now! Whether or not Nike allows Kobe to wear these shoes on court this year remains to be seen, but that would be a treat for fans everywhere.

Kobe Bryant has announced this will be his final season
________________________________________ ▪️Dear Basketball,

From the moment

I started rolling my dad’s tube socks
And shooting imaginary
Game-winning shots
In the Great Western Forum
I knew one thing was real:

I fell in love with you.

A love so deep I gave you my all —
From my mind & body
To my spirit & soul.

As a six-year-old boy
Deeply in love with you
I never saw the end of the tunnel.
I only saw myself
Running out of one.
And so I ran.
I ran up and down every court
After every loose ball for you.
You asked for my hustle
I gave you my heart
Because it came with so much more.

I played through the sweat and hurt
Not because challenge called me
But because YOU called me.
I did everything for YOU
Because that’s what you do
When someone makes you feel as
Alive as you’ve made me feel.

You gave a six-year-old boy his Laker dream
And I’ll always love you for it.
But I can’t love you obsessively for much longer.
This season is all I have left to give.
My heart can take the pounding
My mind can handle the grind
But my body knows it’s time to say goodbye.

And that’s OK.
I’m ready to let you go.
I want you to know now
So we both can savor every moment we have left together.
The good and the bad.
We have given each other
All that we have.
And we both know, no matter what I do next
I’ll always be that kid
With the rolled up socks
Garbage can in the corner
:05 seconds on the clock
Ball in my hands.
5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 🔸Love you always,
Kobe

Alley Alert - Seeing that I’m a Lakers fan I have to use my opportunities to showcase a few highlights even when we are one of the worst teams in the NBA (record-wise) but at least we compete every night. Lou Williams sees a wide open Jordan Clarkson cutting towards the hoop and he lops up a nice pass and Jordan Catches it and shows off some of that athleticism.
