Going into the season, if someone said the Phoenix Suns' P.J. Tucker would be one of the main sources for Nike Kobe 9 news, you'd probably tell them they were buggin'. As it is though, Tucker has been the go to guy for the earliest viewings of upcoming Kobe 9 models. 

With the introduction of the 9 Low, Tucker continues to be the man as he recently unveiled a black colorway that seems to feature a close-up or magnified view of python skin. With the "Black Mamba" being Bryant's nickname, the print is a fitting design choice. No word if these are just a PE or if they'll eventually hit retail at some point. But with the regular season winding down and the playoffs just a few weeks away, we're hoping Tucker still has a few more suprises in store.
