We all know that Kobe’s one of those special players that turned into one of the best athletes in the world. His list of achievements are not to be gawked at- scoring 81 points, 2008 League MVP, 2008 Olympic Gold Medal member with Team USA, 2009 Finals MVP and his four rings, the last one during the recently concluded 2009 NBA Finals.
Kobe has met with players and fans alike throughout Asia over the past three summers; touring with Nike during 06 and 07, and as part of Team USA leading up to the games in Beijing where he led the team to gold in 2008. This summer’s tour offers Kobe a chance to check back in with the young players he met on previous tours and meet up and coming players who he hopes to inspire. “I’m looking forward to returning to Asia to see the progress the kids have made since my last visit,” said Bryant. “I liked what I saw then and I’m planning to work the kids even harder to give them a better sense of the dedication and hard work it takes to be a champion”.
As mentioned on a previous post, Nike launched the Dream Season. Developed to meet the needs of outdoor basketball players in Asia, the Nike Dream Season was designed with insights from KB24. The shoe is exclusive to Asia. So you know what that means guys– cop it!!!
