Nick Young had the privilege of debuting Kobe Bryant’s new Nike Kobe 9 high-tops in tonight’s game against the Miami Heat.
Obviously, Bryant would’ve hoped to debut the shoes himself, though he was sidelined for a second time last month after fracturing his left knee in just his sixth outing of the year in a game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Young was presumably excited to be the first to wear the new high-tops seeing as he was gushing about being the only player to sport Bryant’s special edition shoes on Martin Luther King Jr. Day earlier this week.
Swaggy P is an avid shoe collector, so this will definitely be a pair of kicks the L.A. native holds onto.
The Kobe 9 high-tops will be available to purchase from February 8.
