The NBA Preseason is in full swing and no one could be happier to be back on court than the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant.

Showing he’s fully recovered from the Achilles injury that ended his 2013-2014 season early, Bryant has impressed early on this preseason showing he still has plenty of game in his 36 year old body. While Kevin Durant and LeBron James have all rocked their latest signature models, Bryant, whose latest signature shoe has yet to be unveiled, continued to roll on with the Nike Kobe 9. Featured here is the PE that the Mamba has been rocking of late. Decked out in an all white upper with “Concord” accents, this reported “Home” version of the 9s isn’t as eye catching as previous colorways, but still impresses with a clean colorup. If you want to reach, you might say these resemble the Air Jordan XI “Concords.” While doubtful these will ever drop, you might be inclined to find yourself a pair of the “Beethovens” or just go ahead and wait for the upcoming “Brave Blues.”
