This evening, Kobe “The Black Mamba” Bryant added yet another milestone to his illustrious career. Hitting a pair of free throws, the Lakers superstar surpassed his boyhood idol, Michael Jordan, for third on the all-time scoring list, trailing just Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone. To commemorate this achievement, Nike has released the NikeiD Kobe 9 Elite Low “Mamba Moment” sneaker.
