Update: The Nike Kobe AD City of Compton also known as DeMar DeRozan PE is inspired by his memory of watching Kobe Bryant play against the Utah Jazz in the 1997 playoffs. Bryant’s “airball game” taught the legend how to deal with adversity and showed DeRozan that resilience was key to success on court.

May 12, 1997 is featured on the lace tips which is when the game took place. A picture of the street that DeRozan grew up in Compton is featured on the sockliner. Finally, the Kobe logo, DNA symbol and signature on the heel tabs follow the color scheme of Bryant’s “airball game” opponent.
