New 710 ESPN podkast, plus some visual candy of the Zoom Kobe IV variety!
Our latest session in the 710 ESPN studio features some L.A.-Boston shop talk with CelticsBlog's Steve Weinman, plus our thoughts on some currently-not-so-swell elements plaguing Lakers Land of late: Lamar Odom's play, Andrew Bynum's play, focus, D, ball movement. Basically, everything but DJ Mbenga's choice of street clothes while inactive. (Dude is a snappy dresser!)
But today's update isn't limited simply to audio presentations. Oh, no, no, no! In case folks haven't seen it, the latest Nike Zoom Kobe IV viral ad- like "the kids," Kobe loves him some viral- is up and running on Youtube. Take a gander and see what you think. Personally, I prefer the Hyperdunk spots with Ronny and the Aston Martin or the Jackass dudes. But that's just my opinion and perhaps subject to change after the Mamba-Epps winner is eventually revealed.
Below the jump is also some information about Nike Zoom Kobe IV's being given out to fans and auctioned on EBay to benefit the Kobe Bryant Family Foundation.
There will be 24 pairs of the Nike Zoom Kobe IV sold daily on NIKEiD.com from Dec. 25 until Feb. 1. After Feb. 1, the Zoom Kobe IV will be available in normal capacity on NIKEiD.com. Bryant also teamed up with NIKEiD design consultants to create two eye-catching color schemes which he will wear in game action along with a surprise creation.
Bryant will give away 100 pairs of NIKEiD-designed Zoom Kobe IV shoes to lucky fans at the Staples Center just prior to gameday on Christmas. The NIKEiD Zoom Kobe IV shoes that Bryant actually wears during the game will be signed and auctioned on ebay.com with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Kobe Bryant Family Foundation. In addition to the one-of-a-kind shoes, the winning bidder will receive two tickets to a future game and the chance to receive the shoes from Kobe directly.
