Kobe Bryant walked out of Indiana’s Bankers Life Fieldhouse for the final time following last night’s 87-89 loss to the Pacers, but not before leaving Paul George with a pretty incredible parting gift.
Although George joked about Kobe’s age in a post-game interview, there doesn’t appear to be any hard feelings between the two as Bryant dropped off a signed pair of “All-Star” Nike Kobe 11s before leaving the arena. We can’t make out exactly what Kobe scribbled on the shoe, but it looks like the Mamba left George a personalized message much like he did for Draymond Green.
“Thanks for everything! From a far, YOU put that ball in my hand as a youngin,” George wrote on Instagram.
The Nike Kobe 11 “All-Star” is priced at $220 and releases alongside the Nike Basketball “Sport Royalty” collection this Thursday, February 11.
