Today will go down as one of the saddest days in basketball history. This morning, Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash along with one of his daughters, Gianna. I have linked an article I found that commemorates some of his most landmark games with beautiful designs of his shoes, done by basketball artist Melvin John Rodas. The Kobe brand has gone on to become one of the most recognizable basketball brands in the world. The graphics surrounding this brand are sleek, strong, and sharp, just like the player that inspired them.
