After missing three games due to rest, Kobe Bryant will make his return to the NBA court tonight for the Lakers game against the Suns. Here's to hoping that he'll be wearing this Nike Kobe 9 Elite PE again.

Today, we are getting a close up look at the Kobe 9 Elite PE that Mamba laced up for the Lakers game against the Kings last week. The wolf-grey Flyknit upper is complemented by a black zig-zagged pattern with pops of yellow on the Nike Swoosh and Flywire cables. We've seen Bryant wear plenty of Kobe 9 PEs this season, but after seeing this one up close we have to ask if this is the best one yet? With the Kobe X release on the horizon, we might not get many more on-court looks at the Kobe 9, so enjoy them while they last.

Check out Bryant's Nike Kobe 9 Elite PE below and keep it with Sneaker Report in the event that they release.
