The NBA Playoffs is in full effect with the second round kicking off last night. Players all across the league have been rocking the performance marvel that is the Nike Kobe 9 Elite on court this year, with some of them lucky enough to get their very own player exclusive. Today, we get a look at the next PE of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, but unfortunately we may not see these grace the court.

For the most part, major Nike ambassadors without a signature shoe have all but been eliminated from the playoffs, so chances are we won't be seeing these hit the court in the second round. Coming in what looks like another Laker inspired colorway, this Nike Kobe 9 Elite PE features an all black upper with gold accents through the Swoosh, and yellow touches on the outsole and sock liner. Since they're just a PE currently, theres no nickname that corresponds with this colorway like the "Inspiration" and "Hero" models we've seen in the past.

Check out the latest Nike Kobe 9 Elite PE's and let us know @SneakerReport if you would pick up a pair if and when they hit retail.
