Kobe Supports World AIDS Day

This is a picture of a foot, but not just any foot, the foot of four time NBA champion of the world Kobe Bryant. While you could focus on the yet to be released White/Ice Kobe IVs that he is rocking, or the (red) shoe laces that he sports in support of world AIDS day which was Tuesday, I’ll pick a different aspect. Underneath that cushy, comfy, 10 dollar retail priced socked is a heavily taped ankle. What’s the big deal one might postulate, every well trained athlete should tape their ankle, and I would agree with you. But not every well trained athlete sponors a low top basketball shoe and professes that the defender will need “ankle insurance”. Nike would do well to keep that tape job hidden for fear of unearthing the concrete FACT that every John Q. men’s league player will sprain their ankles in these if not properly suported. Take it from a guy who lost to a team called the Yugoslovian Young Guns….it’s a fact.
