Canary colored like Bumblebee, Nike have transformed the Kobe 5 into something that “adapts what is useful, rejects what is useless and adds what is specifically (their) own.”

Enter this Dragon.

Uma Thurman once samurai sliced and diced her way through more bad guys than Hollywood on this jilted and left for dead brides way to ‘Kill Bill’. Rocking a yellow jumpsuit that paid tribute to one of the greatest athletes of all-time, deadly like the bite from a Black Mamba.

No we aren’t talking about a Los Angeles Laker or even a G.O.A.T., but another unbeatable icon who had his own 30 For 30 ESPN documentary this year like Michael Jordan’s ‘Last Dance’ with the Chicago Bulls.

Be still and ‘Be Water’ because this gold standard was different, even battling the Laker legend and highest NBA scorer of all-time Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in a ‘Game Of Death’.

Once upon a time in Hollywood, now this is the tribute that martial arts game changer Bruce Lee deserves.

Canary colored like Bumblebee, Nike have transformed the Kobe 5 into something that “adapts what is useful, rejects what is useless and adds what is specifically (their) own.” The Proto Bruce Lee flows off the concept art sketches to the shelves for consumers like water through a Spring this fall.

A decade after Bryant won the last ring before this tragic to homaged year for the Lakers and the original Kobe ‘Bruce Lee’  the second coming has risen. 10 years later the Proto in Del Sol/Metallic Silver-Comet Red-Black pays tribute to the ‘Game Of Death’ one-piece that saw Lee beat Kareem in sunglasses and shorts fair and square, no cap.

Add the red stitching of some scratch marks straight off the chest of ‘Enter The Dragon’ and then you really have something in all its signature style. All autographed with Beans Hancock. All for the legend taken before his time who inspired another legend taken before his time as Nike tell us to, “rise like a legend” and, “strike like a Mamba”.

After all, “the key to immorality is first living a life worth remembering.”

Now just do that.

“As you think, so shall you become.”
