2. Kobe Bryant
Notable Player Editions: Air Jordan III, VII, & VIII
It was cool to see young Kob' do his thing and help adidas evolve into a competitive brand, but when all the Jordan comparisons hit it was insane to see him throwing down crazy dunks and hitting fadeaways in some player-edition IIIs. During Kobe's brief stint as a sneaker free agent, Jordan Brand laced him with player exclusives of the Jordan greats and executed the Lakers purple and gold perfectly on each kick.
