It’s going to be a special night for Kobe Bryant.
With just 9 more points, Bryant will pass his idol, Michael Jordan, in all-time points scored in the NBA. Moving past MJ will put Kobe at third all-time in the history of the league.
So, seeing as it’s a special occasion, the Black Mamba needed to wear some special kicks for tonight’s game.
Here’s a look at Bryant’s Nikes, courtesy of the NBA’s official Twitter account:
Most of Kobe’s shoes look great, but these are a little more special than his usual kicks. Maybe it’s the gold? Whatever it is, these shoes will likely be a prized possession of Bryant’s for many years to come.
