words_Nick DePaula Sure, Nike can go ahead and do a Playoff Pack colorway for Kobe this early. Afterall, it's a bit different than when they blew it last year with the Amar'e Stoudemire Foamposite Lite and Steve Nash Zoom MVP -- only for the Suns to miss the playoffs entirely. Kobe will be there. Every year. It's become one of the biggest certainties in all of sport. Next month, look for #24 in a Black/Chrome/Del Sol/Varsity Purple version of the Zoom Kobe V, as he looks to defend what's rightfully his; sights firmly set on a fifth title. images via Rakuten
