It’s a shame Kobe Bryant won’t be able to play in this year’s All-Star Game.

Bryant was selected to his 16th straight game this year by the fans, yet he won’t take part in the festivities – not on the court, at least – as he’s still recovering from a fracture in his left knee.

However, that doesn’t mean that he won’t have an awesome-looking jacket made in his honor.

The jacket is made by adidas and can be seen hanging next to LeBron James’ version in the picture below.

Both jackets feature a number of achievements, yet Bryant’s is obviously with the one with more championship trophies stitched on, while James has more regular season MVP awards.

These jackets apparently retail for $225. Will you be looking to pick one up from Amazon or eBay?
