Nike To Deliver Kobe's 'Eulogy' This Weekend

That’s it for Kobe Bryant folks!

No, the retiring star hasn’t hung them up just yet (give it a couple more games…still doesn’t feel real right?), but Nike are about to drop the last in the legacy line of Bean’s legendary sneakers, before he puts them up top his locker for one last game.

And it’s fitting the last Kobe XI delivered will be called the Eulogy.

Time to mourn the loss of one of our generations great…but save the tears.

Father time may have grounded the Mamba, but these new cleats are so fresh it’s not about drawing the last of the venom or ageing like a fine vino. From it’s snake skin texture to the deep purple look for the golden moment of the Laker legends twilight.

These low top high sellers to be come weeks end are something to converse on. Chuck would be proud of these tailor made Nikes that are as intricately beautiful as each individual stitch in the shoe and moment and memory of the timeline of the career of the feet running in them. Sure when it comes to this game, whether the sport itself or the sneakers that strides through it no one is touching the air of the greatest Michael Jordan. Still the closest to M.J. in talent, Kobe is also competing with his legendary Air Jordan brand with his own revolutionary kicks by Nike.

These new signatures from Shaq’s former sidekick, come man in the middle in his own right retail at around $200, but just imagine the eBay fees they would fetch if you managed to get Bean’s Hancock autographed on this perfect pair?

The Eulogy is the fitting testament tribute to the man whose about to walk away from this game straight through to the corridors of the Hall of Fame. Ok, lets calm down, Kobe ain’t dying, but a little bit of the soul of this great game will be when the most competitive heart that has beat a basketball since number 23 takes his last shot. When his time comes and the buzzer rings out please be upstanding and remove your hats like pregame anthems for this national treasure. And if you are good enough to wear a suit for the event, make sure you rock the Eulogies with that black tie…

…and check the blacktop heel like his summer surprise at the Rucker for the numbers 8 and 24. Now in his rafter ascension which engraving should make the epitath?

New Nike Giannis Antetokounmpo Sneakers Are Coming To America Poster
"Sexual Chocolate"...

“GOOD MORNING NEIGHBORS!”

“Hey! F### you!”

(With genuine joy and affection back) “Yes! F### you too!”

Ever since Milwaukee Bucks position and court redefining Point God, Giannis Antetokounmpo came to America like Eddie Murphy, he truly beyond a clich√© changed the game and the watching world. And now with Nike, lacing up some new signatures inspired by the classic 80’s Murphy movie ‘Coming To America’, the Greek Freak is about to change the sneaker one too.

These new most valuable sneakers from this year’s MVP are so clean they’ll have you running up like Samuel L. Jackson in “McDowell’s”.

Time to get the brooms.

It’s about to be a clean sweep Foot Locker.

Antetokounmpo’s first sneaker the Nike Freak 1 is about to take all those LeBron, Kobe’s and Westbrook’s to the shoeboxes with this breath of Air. Fresh out the cardboard these colorful pairs have a reversed swoosh like Travis Scott. Perfect for any shoe dog like Phil Knight. And these ‘Coming’ colorways also feature leopard, black, grey and gold accents to the men who would be King. Prince Akeem’s royal garb and the most inspired international influence this league has seen since the dream shake of Hakeem Olaujawon for a regal fit.

And with the gold ‘Coming To America’ logo on the tongue of these licks you can expect this revolution to be televised. But please bring back our favourite ‘Raw’ and ‘Delirious’ comedian for the commercial Nike.

This perfect pair for the theme of the perfect prototype player of this games future generation drip as hard as ‘ER’ and ‘Logan’ star Eriq La Salle’s jheri curl in this movie. Watch the shoes like Ronald Reagan said to Eazy-E when N.W.A. visited the White House according to The Game! If co-star Arsenio Hall still had a show (bring it on back again) then he’d have them as a guest on his couch. With or without the freak.

Put up a wall against these Trump! We have more shoeboxes to stack.

Wearing clothes are about to be a new experience for you as you unbox these with the rose petals that fall out like Tokyo trees after cherry blossom season instead of tissue paper. There’s also some ‘Coming To America’ inspired Freak 1 Nike apparel to match with some ‘I Love NY’ heart homages to the film about a prince who made his way to the Big Apple like this kid from the Olympic home of athletes in Athens, Greece did on Draft Day.

These really are the Crown Prince of Zamuda.

These Greek sneakers are so freaking good, you’re going to want to renounce your throne.

Come on, come all.

Dame Time Forever. What Are Those New Adidas ‘Black Panther’s’?

Damian Lillard Adidas Dame 5 Black Panther
A Nation Under Our Sneakers...

Adidas are in the Endgame now.

Before we get started, Havlicek would have stole that ball. Just saying Paul George. Stop acting like Paul Pierce. It wasn’t a “bad shot”. And R.I.P. to a Boston Celtic and storied NBA great. Dear John will be stealing every ball in hoop heaven. Rest peacefully.

Like a cat toying with a mouse. That’s how we described Lillard’s Dame Time winning clutch three from Mt. Hood as Portland gave Oklahoma City roses in the first round this week. Damian had more clock than grandfather’s and still took his time. Because it is his after all.

And now as timely as ever in the same week as one of the greatest playoff game and series winning shots in basketball for all time and one of the biggest blockbusters in Hollywood history coming out with ‘Avengers: Endgame’, this cat is building a superhero legendary legacy.

You better check a comic-book or something.

T’Challa may have been Thanos snapped to cat litter in the Avengers ‘Infinity War’, but the King of Wakanda has a regal gift by royal appointment to Damian Lillard like he did Victor Oladipo in a victorious Slam Dunk Contest for testament tributes last season.

The cat has something out the bag.

The pick of the litter…

Now you may be screaming “what are those” like Shuri at these royal sandals, but try these sneakers on. They embody everything about the next-gen, nano-tech Black Panther suit she developed for this emperor’s clothes. All the way down to the texture and trim which straps “Wakanda Forever” over the laces. The titan mad purple that runs like veins through Chadwick Boseman’s superhero suit absorbs all the blows he takes and turns it into a recharged deflecting energy pulse. Kind of like all the rock the baby and wrist tapping crap Damian Lillard was taking off Russell Westbrook before he absorbed it all and gave it back in a half century energy that exploded with a game-winning fireball.

Never delete that footage.

Marvel have also gifted Dame with his own Black Panther mask like Oladipo, but this time canvas created from his super sneakers. Part of the ‘Heroes Among Us’ series from the three stripes, a comic-strip advertising campaign has been crafted. Featuring Lillard standing in front of the downtown RIP City, PDX skyline looking Wakandan in artwork akin to the ‘Nation Under Our Feet’ graphic novel redux series that rebooted this classic character before his feature film debut.

Damian may have played Killmonger villain to the Oklahoma Thunder, going G.O.A.T. like Michael Jordan B. But he’s a hero to us now blazing a trail like a human torch possessed with a fire and the heart of a lion inside all that panther power.

The Dame 5 will assemble with the arc of the bolted up ‘Iron Man’ Harden Vol. 3 for James and the patch of the ‘Nick Fury’ TMac 1 for Tracy McGrady. As well as the ‘Captain America’ Adidas N3XT L3V3L, and a ‘Captain Marvel’ Adidas Pro Vision for all those who could take the lead all day, with us ’till the end of the line. HIGHER. FURTHER. FASTER.

But we know which ones will be clawed off the stores shelf throne come it’s big blockbuster release with ‘Endgame’ right now.

It’s a drip fit for a King.
