Nike Kobe 4 Protro Hornets Draft Day, Solid Move By Nike, Skipping The Kobe 2& 3

Sharing is caring!

I don’t think the Hornets’s scouts were aware that they were giving away the most lethal offensive player of the last two decades when young Kobe Bryant, the number 13 overall pick in the loaded 1996 NBA draft was traded to the Lakers. The rest is history and we all know how much fear Kobe put into our hearts every time he played against my Celtics. Nike took the Jordan Retro route by launching the Kobe Protro collection last year but I don’t think it was much of a success in the sense that several of the models have been collecting dust on retailers’ shelves ( I will be giving some proof about this claim once I update this post in a few days). The reason why I’m so bold in my claim is because Nike jumped straight from the Kobe 1 Protro to the Kobe 4 Protro ( we’re talking about skipping the Kobe 2 and 3). Of course the brand will justify its choice of the Kobe 4 Hornets because this year’s All Star Week End celebration is taking place in Charlotte. But honestly I suspect that Nike has realized that releasing the Kobe 2 and 3 will be synonymous with tanking in the NBA. Those two models were never highly sought after and if Nike plans on  running parallel to the Edit To Amplify campaign , it will be wise to stick to the Kobe 4 silhouette which I think was one of the most successful iterations in the Black Mamba’s collection. Let me just give you a list of the Kobe 4’s that on most folks’ radar: Kobe 4 Carpe Diem, Kobe 4 Bruce Lee, Kobe 4 MVP, Kobe 4 Rings, Kobe 4 Rice, Kobe 4 Merion, Kobe 4 Olympic, Kobe 4 think Pink, Kobe 4 Playoffs, Kobe 4 MPLS just to name these.

I’m also saying that Nike has so many options and if the brand was to tap into the Kobe 4 silhouette this year, I think it will be successful endeavor. I’m definitely looking forward to scooping up a pair of the Nike Kobe 4 Protro Hornets Draft Day for basketball purposes.
