The shoes Kobe Bryant wore in his VERY FIRST NBA game are currently up for sale, and if you have half a million dollars hanging around, you may own them!
The L.A. Black Mamba arrived on the scene for the L.A. Black Mamba arrived on the scene for the L.A. Black Mamba arrived On November 3, 1996, the Lakers took on the Minnesota Timberwolves. In just 6 minutes of action off the bench, he went scoreless.
As he stepped onto the court for the first time, Bryant wore a special pair of size 14 Adidas kicks. After the game, he ended up donating it to a devoted fan outside The Forum.
The fan was able to run into Kobe again a few years later, and the legend instantly signed them outside the team’s hotel.
The collector is now attempting to sell the mementos, putting them up for auction on Gotta Have Rock And Roll.
These footwear, which also have a game ticket stub, aren’t cheap, according to our sources… They have a $100k minimum bid and might sell for $500k!!!
Of course, the five-time champion went on to score a lot in his career, finishing fourth all-time with 33,643 points… and went on to become one of the best basketball players of all time.
The auction will begin on Wednesday… Best of luck!
