With Lakers fans now having to put their faith in Dwight Howard, his performance last night should give the Laker nation some hope as the Lakers have secured the 7th spot in the Western Conference.
With this recent turn of events for the Lakers comes some new information on the Black Mambas 'Purple Gradient' Nike Kobe 8's. Sneakerheads can expect to see this latest colorway hit retailers everywhere on May 11th. Though this is yet another sick colorway for the Nike Kobe 8, it's truly a shame that we won't get to see Kobe himself lace these bad boys up for the Lakers first round matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.
Again, these will be hitting select retailers in just over two weeks, so check out the pics and keep it locked right here with SneakerFiles for any and all updates leading up to their release date.
