PHOTO: LeBron James Wears Nike Kobe Prelude VI While Watching Football


Kobe + LeBronLeBron James stirred up the basketball world this afternoon when he posted a photo on his Instagram account wearing a pair of the Nike Kobe Prelude VI.

Both superstars have a deal with Nike, and it’s possible that LeBron is simply showing the brand some love. However, the competitive nature between the two on the court is what naturally makes this so interesting.

One would not expect Bryant to do something like this, simply due to the fact that he’d be endorsing his number one rival (in fans eyes).

James posted this photo as the Lakers were en route to a 112-106 victory over the Toronto Raptors. It’ll be interesting to see if Bryant responds to the kind gesture, or ever better, actually sports some shoes from the King James collection

Here is James’ post of him wearing Kobe shoes via Instagram:

    Who the hell cares, I’m sure both wear Air Jordan’s.

    • bored23

      Yes they both do wear Air Jordan’s. Kobe wore some Air Jordan’s early in his career and still does off the court. Lebron wear’s some sometimes as well off the court. It’s just a shoe and they are just
      showing some respect to each other.

      Why Mario and birdman? Their not that good. LeBron makes their jobs easier on Miami. I wouldn’t want neither of these guys. So much more talent than these two scrubs
