With Kobe Bryant currently dealing with a knee injury that has kept him off the floor since December, Nick Young has been helping picking up the slack for Bryant in more ways than one. Along with being the leading scorer for the Los Angeles Lakers, Young has also helped get some exposure for Bryant’s new shoe, Kobe 9 Elite.
On Sunday, Young wore a new colorway for the Kobe 9 Elite while taking on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Young, like many players in the NBA today, is all about fashion and wearing popular kicks on and off the floor.
Here’s a look at the new colorway Young debuted on Sunday according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:
