Nike to celebrate ‘Mamba Week’ in honour of Kobe Bryant

Global sportswear giant Nike is set to honour the late Kobe Bryant with “Mamba Week”, which starts on August 24.

The Nike Foundation wants to raise a $1 million for the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation by releasing several Bryant signature products.

In a statement, Nike revealed that the NBA legend’s shoes will continue to be sold in various stores.

“Nike will continue to release Kobe Protro shoes, allowing the millions of fans he inspired around the world to keep Bryant’s legacy going,” the statement said, via ESPN’s Nick DePaula.

“Nike will also continue to work with the NBA to release limited quantities of Bryant’s iconic Los Angeles Lakers jersey.”

Bryant died alongside his daughter Gianna in January, following a helicopter crash which also claimed the lives of eight others.

 He is rated as one of the greatest NBA players, having won five championships with Los Angeles Lakers and two Finals MVPs.
