Kobe Bryant may be unable to return to the floor for the Los Angeles Lakers at this point in time, but that hasn’t stopped him from remaining in the public eye in more ways than one.
Along with debuting a new Lakers colorway for the Kobe 9 Elite last night at the Miami-Duke game in Florida, Kobe 9 Low inspired by Bruce Lee has been leaked out of China according to Kicksologist.com:
Some leaked photos from China have surfaced of the Bruce Lee influenced Kobe 9 Low that looks to be constructed of full engineered mesh upper and flyknit tech that looks a little different from the Nike Kobe 9 Elites that were announced. The assumption that these are the Bruce Lee editions come from the same colorway as found in the Nike Zoom Kobe 5 lineup with the yellow theme with red accents.

Bryant has been inspired by Lee for quite some time:
