Spalding Honors The Legendary ‘Mamba’ With A ‘Kobe 94’ Snakeskin Basketball

Jun 19, 2020

Category: Gear

In January, the world, as well as the NBA, lost one of its most revered athletes. Kobe Bryant served as a guiding light through some of basketball’s most trying times, and along the way, he broke records, set the standard for future generations, and raised a family, to boot. To honor the man, the myth, and the legend, Spalding has released the limited-edition Kobe 94 Series Silver basketball — a well-designed homage to the Mamba, himself.

Spalding’s most recent release takes on an all-silver silhouette and arrives under the guise of a snakeskin-embossed composite cover. As a clear reference to the legacy of the Mamba, the basketball hopes to symbolize Bryant’s propensity for change, marking his evolution from an on-court legend, into that of a philanthropist, author, and youth leader. On its exterior, an embossed signature makes its debut next to “24” — his jersey number for the 2006-2007 season. To round things out, each example will arrive in a specialized case, giving it the perfect foundation for honorable display. Head to Spalding’s website to pick up one of your own for $125.

Purchase: $125
