With Kobe Bryant out for the season, his Laker teammates have been left with the task of wearing the latest Nike Kobe shoes on-court.

Tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks, forward Wesley Johnson paid homage to his mentor by breaking out the 'Bruce Lee' Kobe 9 Elite PE. Also owned by Terrell Owens, the shoe features a yellow Flyknit upper, black accents, a speckled midsole and red stitching on the heel.

A tribute to a man Bryant cites as a hero, Bruce Lee colorways have been a staple in his signature line since the Kobe 5. Unfortunately, this pair won't be released to the public.
