Kobe Bryant & Gary Payton Talk Nike Kobe 9

No stranger to boundary-pushing signature shoes, GP gets Kobe's thoughts on his new high-top and even manages to plug The Gloves, which Kobe says he was envious of back when they played against each other. Maybe Nike should box him up a pair of Sonic Waves?
