Several weeks ago, we gave a preview on these Compton inspired Mamba’s. For some time now, DeMar DeRozan has represented the #KobeSystem up North in Toronto. He’s known to wear the almost every model of the Kobe series and for that, Nike Basketball is rewarding him with his own personalized pair.
The Raptors guard is having a great year this year in Toronto as they make prepare themselves for another Playoff run in the NBA. He is having his best year yet as a Raptor averaging, 27 points, 4 assists, and 5.3 rebounds. The Raptors are in third place in the East at a current record of 48 wins and 31 losses with the Wizards closing in. Regardless of their record, DeRozan has led the Raptors to Playoff contention as his starting point guard Kyle Lowry has been injured.
With his subtle rise in the league, DeRozan is getting his own PE from Nike Basketball courtesy of the Mamba. I’m sure Kobe Bryant himself has given DeRozan his respect and blessing to be anointed with their own personal pair, let alone having one released to the public.
