Kobe would have been lacing up these inline, white/yellow/purple Zoom Vs for the Lakers’ home game against the Celtics tonight.
This years All-Star game will not be the same without the Black Mamba.
The Los Angeles Lakers last three wins have come with Bryant resting his sore left ankle, which he aggravated last week. Whether he will play in Sunday's All-Star game is still up in the air, but the team has shown that they can still hold it down for him to recover as they prepare to defend their NBA title.
During Saturday's game, the injured Kobe Bryant was replaced by Lamar Odom to aid in the Lakers breaking their nine-game losing streak at the Rose Garden with a 99-82 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.
