Kobe Bryant's season of signing sneakers rolls on, but with time with a pair we haven't seen receive ink before.

Moments ago, Bryant's friend (and former teammate!) posted his personalized gift from Bryant — the "Lakers" Air Jordan 3 PE which has only been given to friends and family of Jordan Brand. In his inscription, Bryant referred to Paul as "one of the greatest competitors of all-time." Not many people are going to argue with that praise for the 9-time All-Star.

Though the Bryant-inspired Jordan 3s have been rumored to be releasing as part of a two-pack, nothing new has developed on that front since the news first leaked. Be sure to follow along for any possible updates.
