Nike and athletes pay homage to the Black Mamba

As we unfortunately and inevitably march toward the end of the legendary hoops career of one Mr. Kobe Bryant, Nike is honoring this all-time great with a global tribute. Starting today, Nike-sponsored athletes will rock black and gold shoes, which is intended to be a metaphoric tip of the cap, or sneaker in this case, to Kobe’s golden career fading to black.

This black and gold tribute will culminate with the Mamba Day celebration on April 13, the day of Kobe’s last NBA game in which the Lakers play host to the Utah Jazz.
