Kobe Bryant and the Charlotte Hornets. Can't recall the correlation? Well, quite possibly paying homage to the Hornets 1996 draft selection of Kobe (whose rights they then traded to the Lakers for, sigh, Vlade Divac), Nike dresses up his Zoom Kobe VI with a Hornets-inspired scheme. Say what you want, but the team's dedicated color tandem still meshes beautifully. Expect the White/Chlorine-Orion Blue make up to hit stores May 26. Five rings later — what's up, George Shinn?
