love the feel of the original patent leather crimping down on your toes???? I bet they use newer technology to avoid that, LeBron's never have that issue....I have a few JordanXI's but I don't want to be a follower, (wearing one of the "best shoes ever", Look for a rise in the value of Kobe shoes, back to the Adidas originals...Kobe should have 3 lines of shoes, as his low-cuts are narrow, maybe with the twisted ankle, he'll think more about high tops, I doubt it, Kobe has proven, without the 6th ring, that he is up there with MJ....he never had the hands or body or legs of MJ, but he definitely has the heart and soul to be up there.

 @rizl_85 name them...CWebb known for the Huarache style shoe, which Kobe brought bought as the 2K4 had hints of it, Rodman wore the N'Destruks, never anyones favorite because some people can't deal with assymetry (laces were tilted off to the side, I love em), Duncan...those army boot heavy Air Foamposite Max...that's why Duncan never jumped very high, I'd say more big men should wear them to stay grounded and develop footwork and avoid injury, Payton....Air Zoom's the Glove...people can't deal with a shoe within an outer skin, same concept used for the Nike Pippen V, the shoes wear "hot" and heavy, as the shoe doesn't breath through the outer skin, lastly VC...his shoes were the Shox, IMHO one of the ugliest shoes back then and to this day...any SHOX shoe....Nike can use the concept in my opinion, but hide those "pistons".....

 @denzel they called the retros "Crazy 8's" because Kobe was then under contract with Nike, so that would be illegal to use his name, so they took a slap at Kobe by throwing in the word "crazy"...Kobe Bryant probably could have sued and won for that...slander.

 @denzel off the top of my head, I'll say the Crazy 8's were by Adidas not in the 1990's but a retro of the Kobe Shoes which went by another name, I forgot, but the II was really good, I think it's the Crazy 8...ok, now I'll look...here http://www.kicksologists.com/kobe-bryant-sneakers/...I bought them in all white, and they were great to wear, play in...either they were the KB8 or the KB8 III

The sneaker world is really messed up when Adidas and Puma will not even retro and name their shoes accurately....I know, I grew up wearing the originals....Adidas Rom, Gazelle, Mexicana, Italia, Superstar....Puma Clyde or whatever...the retros are from Puma are just for walking around the malls....WOW, supercoool.....

 @elementasrat good question, if I find mine, I'll check, maybe they were mirrored....I checked the bottom of my AJ VII Raptor retros and they were mirrored...ball towards the inside of shoe....

The top is a very shiny black leather, probably because the area was flat, and there wasn't alot of leather that needed to be painted black...if not painted so thoroughly, the shoes would have looked cheap after just a few wearings. Sold my "new" from my collection AJ IX's (white/french blue/flint grey)'s for $365, but probably paid more for those (not over $175, I know)....and now we can sit back and wait for someone to say that the only great Air Jordans were the I's, the IV's and the XI's, which I highly disagree upon. my favorite's are the XX's...

Those shoes were sooooo unpopular when first released, stores and ebay sellers were trying to dump them for $39 a pair, I picked up 3 pairs. I thought they were interesting and a break from the normal colors of B-ball shoes, and would be great as casual, I still have 1 pair I had worn, 1 pair still new, and sold a pair on EBay for $200, not bad for $39 cost....but had to hold them for about 15 years...

JeffProjectSpurs, Bynum is getting bashed in LA for the move, and honestly, I approved of some contact, however Beaz was in the air, then on the ground, Bynum almost had his back turned to Beaz,...look, what if Bynum had better position and they just both body slammed each other mid air...Bynum's size makes him a "victim" in a way. Look, Kobe and Bowen/Ginobili went at it for years, the fact is neither hit the deck ...if Beaz had landed like a cat, and walked away, what would the penalty have been. I bring up the Raja Bell "assault" on Kobe, in '06....if Kobe were wheeled out on a stretcher, and it could have happened, not Pierce style, but in reality, I say Bell deserved a major suspension of 15-30 games the following season, that was assault. The fact that Kobe got up, and shook his head to blow bell off, negated a harsher penalty on Bell. Bynum keeps his composure, look, he is the biggest big man in the league now that Shaq is "Jabba the Hut"...he can't get a reputation of "free whacks on Bynum"....blame the refs, blame Stern...it was the refs that let Beazley's mouth run rampant all game long....that's why the Lakers should have kept M'Benga around, to "payback", not to "attack", but to "payback"....

Welcome to the club, I get to watch Phil Jackson let players 9-12 rot and not develop, then he puts too many minutes on Kobe, and Pau, (Mr. High Mileage, and Mr. Frail)....only a big VETERAN of playoff runs would help any team, and I don't believe there are any available out there....look we have Joe Smith on the end of our bench, he looks like he would run like "a woman" (no offense intended) if Kobe looks at him wrong (which is actually "right").

@24writer 24W, Thank you, I had planned dabbling here any further, however, your kindness and welcome gesture, I'll be around. The main Laker blog sight I follow is the Los Angeles Times Lakers Blog, it's filled with cliques, people that are erratic, haters that bash with no logic, Laker fans that have been remarking that Derek Fisher is a detriment. So I decided to see what other sights were like. I imagine the further East you go, the more need for "napkins"....True, out of the West, my picks 1-Lakers, 2-Spurs, 3-Dallas (and I dislike all 3 Texas teams!!!)....I know OKC is an equal 3rd pick, however, I feel they have to serve their time before they can earn a trophy. Dallas and LA play Thursday, which to some is critical, however, I am hoping for a strong playoff run by the Lakers to giftwrap Phil Jackson's 4th Triple, Kobe/Fisher get their 6th (Kobe tying MJ...and over a longer time spread against tougher competition....IMHO). One thought, I marveled that your Spurs were able to win a championship one year, when they were around $47million/team/that year....the Lakers were around the cap, and the Knicks were around $124 million and horrible.

>Daniel07...I disagree, if the Laker bligs are clicking in the system, no other team can match size for size...it's only when they don't take opponents seriously during the season, as we all know, the lesser teams get up for the strong teams such as the Lakers/Spurs/Mavs.....

The Lakers may worry a bit about opponents, however I believe with their depth and playoff experience, especially coaching experience, I look forward. Good Luck to your Spurs, but I think the depth, experience and motivation of the Lakers will prevail. Our team is stocked, not in too bad of shape physically, and the Spurs have the Duncan question mark, whereas the Lakers have not been 100% the last 3 playoffs....Have to take the "Stern Factor" into account, and how the games will be called. We all know that the refs can influence a game. I am confidant for the Lakers playoff chances this year, the Spurs are strong obviously by their showing during the season, but the season is a different environment than the playoffs by quite a bit. The team I fear that comes out of the East is the Bulls, or a healthier Celtic bunch, which I believe would be favored by the refs. Goodbye, and does Splitter show any sign of worth for the run over 4 Seven game playoff series???? Any given day, a team can win, but it takes a true champion to win 4 Seven game playoff series.

I live in and have been a lifelong Laker fan, respectful of the Spurs. Popovich and your 3 stars (before the days of the Miami "dingos"). For the last dozen years, the Spurs have been right there with the Lakers, I believe a better overall winning percentage for the era. So I come in peace. People here heard the name "Tiago Splitter"....what's the story on him??? If Duncan is not 100%, your Spurs may be vulnerable as even the "setttled down" Lamar Odom, may be able to matchup against him at times, and Tim's mobility is nowhere near Lamar's.
