Following up 2019’s 24K drop, Spalding returns with another Kobe Bryant-inspired premium basketball release.

As part of the sports equipment brand’s 94 Series of limited-edition basketballs, this iteration — aptly-named “Silver” — is constructed with a grey and black Mamba snakeskin pattern embossed on a composite cover with silver Kobe Bryant signature and “24” front and center.

According to Spalding, “the limited-edition Kobe 94 Series Silver basketball celebrates the process of Kobe’s daily transformation from a player with unmatched focus and determination, to a loving husband, father, coach, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and author.” Adding, “following his retirement, Kobe continued to shed his ‘player’ skin and take on new challenges to inspire people around the globe.”

Dedicated to Kobe’s mission to becoming a champion in whatever he put his mind too, the Kobe 94 Series Silver basketball will be available for Spalding MVP Members on June 15 at 9 a.m. CT. Head over to Spalding.com now to learn more about this commemorative item.
