Kobe Bryant is happy to sign sneakers for other players in the league, just as long as they're not adidas.
In an amazing anecdote shared on Twitter by Darius Soriano, Nick Young claimed Bryant wouldn't sign his shoes because they were the wrong brand.
Nick Young said Kobe threw his Adidas in the trash & wouldn't sign them. Told Young to go get some Nike's for him to sign.— Darius Soriano (@forumbluegold) April 14, 2016
Yes, he even threw them in the trash.
Bryant previously said that he'd give sneakers to anyone who had the balls to ask him, but it's clear now that he's got some more stipulations when it comes to signing stuff.
