Recap: Kobe x Aston Martin Event - Staples Center
Photos of the Kobe x Aston Martin event in sunny Los Angeles.
words_Brandon Richard While their arch rival Boston Celtics were busy dethroning the King, the Laker faithful were gathering at Staples Center to celebrate the release of the Kobe x Aston Martin Pack. The "I Got This Sweepstakes" kicked off on May 7th, and resulted in 221 lucky Kobe fans being chosen at random for a chance to purchase the highly coveted pack. Out of the 221 chosen, 200 would be guaranteed a spot in line, 20 would receive a standby spot for no-shows, and one individual would receive their pack autographed by Kobe Bryant. Additionally, Nike made a limited edition Aston Martin Kobe Bryant BB10 Jacket available to purchase, retailing at $400. Contrary to what Nike stated throughout the contest, the pack was not just limited to the drawing winners. Nike Basketball announced via Twitter that due to several no shows, people could make the trip to Staples and have their crack at one of the Aston Martin Packs. That was not the case for ISS' blackmamba24, who was fortunate enough to land himself a top 20 spot and guarantee his size. He was also kind enough to show us some of the pictures he snapped from the event. From the purple carpet, to the Aston Martin car, to the various displays, we get a nice view at what the event was like. Congratulations and thank you to blackmamba24.
