The year is 1996. The date is June 26. Draft night. Not just any draft night. It’s the night that some of the best players to ever set foot on the NBA hardwood were drafted. The draft class of 1996 is arguably one of the best in history. 10 players went Nike Air Max 90 Damen Schwarz on to become NBA All Stars, including Ray Allen, Jermaine O’Neal, Stephon Marbury and Antoine Walker. And 3 of them even became league MVP: Steve Nash, Allen Iverson Nike Air Presto Dames and, of course, Kobe Bryant. With such a talented and deep draft class it’s maybe understandable that Kobe didn’t get picked super early. But no. 13? Come on! No disrespect, Nike Air Max 90 Femme Noir et Rose but I’m sure Lorenzen Wright, Kerry Kittles, Samaki Walker or Todd Fuller agree that they weren’t really better than the young Mamba.

Except maybe for the Lakers and Jerry West. So they made a deal with the Charlotte Hornets to acquire their draft selection and – 5 minutes before the actual pick – told them to pick Kobe. The Lakers traded their starting center Vlade Adidas NMD Mujer Divac to the Hornets in return – the best draft day trade in history. So Kobe never really played for the Hornets but instead played all his 20 seasons in purple Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Negro & gold.The new Nike Kobe 11 “Draft Day” features a white Engineered Mesh upper with translucent fuse overlays for stability. Turquoise (“Blue Lagoon”) and purple (“Court Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Azul Purple”) hits on the laces, lining and logo details are inspired by the Hornets colorway that Kobe might have worn if things had gone differently. On the heel of the right Adidas ZX Flux Mujer shoe you can find the date of that infamous draft night: 6.26.96. On the heel of the left shoe, on the other hand, there are the 4 red lines we’re used to from the Kobe XI, representing the surgery Kobe had to undergo when he injured his achilles heel
