Nike Kobe 11 “Draft Day”

Though Kobe Bryant's playing days are over, we can still wonder "What if?"

When the NBA legend entered the league in 1996, it was the Charlotte Hornets who drafted him, but he was ultimately traded to the Lakers where he remained for his entire career.

Nike offers up this "Draft Day" edition of the Kobe 11 sneaker to remember the moment, which sports the Charlotte Hornets familiar colorway of Blue Lagoon and Court Purple.

The Nike Kobe 11 "Draft Day" drops April 28 at select retailers and online for $160 USD.
