Exceptional pair of sneakers game used by the legendary Kobe Bryant during his 2012 Los Angeles Lakers playoff series against the Denver Nuggets - Kobe's last playoff season in his career. Nike footwear has great pop in bright Lakers purple, sneakers are size 14 with replica Kobe signature on the heels above a handwritten "5-1-12" in crisp gold fine point Sharpie in unknown hand. Kobe signed in black Sharpie on not one, but both of the white Nike swooshes on the outside of each sneaker, and the bottom of the left shoe has a piece of cloth tape running from toe-to-heel with black marker writing stating, "01 MAY 2012 - Lakers vs Nuggets - 38 pts" in unknown hand. Includes Certificate of Authenticity from Panini Authentic (PA16529) for the use and signatures, as well as an LOA from Sports Investors Authentication (220812M2), which has been photo-matched to Game 2 of the 2012 NBA Western Conference First Round Game on May 1. Bryant's 38 points was the key factor in LA's 104-100 win over the Nuggets in that game, and the Lakers would go on to win the series in seven games before falling to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the conference semi-finals, and sadly did not return to the post-season for the remainder of his Hall of Fame career, making this one of his last post-season worn pairs ever. Nice use shown and rock solid provenance in this game used duo from one of the true legends in NBA history.
