The Black Mamba
Kobe's farewell tour is upon us and in light of it, Sole Collector has released an article titled The Road to Greatness: Moments that Defined Kobe's Career which features some incredible illustrations by Stephen Halker.
Stephen also did an amazing job illustrating Kobe's sneakers along the way. (I still love those Adidas ones!)
And who could forget the night he dropped 81.
The type on these vintage basketball cards are great too.
Love him or hate him. You have to respect him. Kobe has matured a lot in his career but his heart has always been about winning and knew that only hard work got you there. Despite me wanting the Celtics to win this Finals, I will always think of the image below when I think about Kobe.
