Nike Basketball is continuing its annual “Mamba Day” celebration with the launch of a special Kobe Bryant Icon Edition Swingman jersey.

Back in July we shared the Los Angeles Lakers’ new threads for the upcoming 2018-2019 NBA Season. Today the Swoosh celebrates Kobe’s special day by adding his legendary “8” jersey to the mix with a gold base that’s complemented by purple and white trimming, honoring the classic jerseys of Lakers’ past.

The Kobe Bryant icon edition swingman jersey is currently available for preorder at $120 USD via Nike’s webstore. Take a look at the piece above and let us know if you plan on copping. Kobe fans can also take a look at his top forty plays in celebration of his 40th birthday.
