Kobe Bryant and his Los Angeles Lakers head down to Miami tonight to pay a visit to LeBron James‘ Heat squad and perhaps pay them back for the Christmas Day debacle. The two teams could not be any further apart from the versions of themselves back on December 25th. With the Lakers on an 8-0 tear since the All-Star break and the Heat staring at a potential sixth-straight loss, the atmosphere is certain to be in playoff form. When you’ve got the kind of talent on the floor as there will be tonight, you can’t get anything less even if you wanted to.
Speaking of which, the NBA Playoffs are just weeks away and while there is no solid confirmation as to whether or not Kobe will rock the Nike Zoom Kobe VI ‘POP’ (Playoff Pack) model we see here, there’s certainly no reason to see why he wouldn’t. The snakeskin upper is brushed with hazy grey as del sol yellow works the inner liner and the outsole. Black claims the Swoosh, Sheath, heel cap and midsole while white shines on the tongue and heel panel.
Compared to the Nike Zoom Kobe V ‘POP’, the color scheme is a stark departure, but it’s also nice to see Nike switching it up and taking a shot with this build. With that said, we won’t know for sure if the Mamba will rock this Kobe VI ‘POP’ colorway until the Lakers tip-off in Game 1 of the playoffs in April.
Will the champs be standing at the top once again in June? How does this colorway compare to the ones you see below?
