This is the match-up that the NBA and Nike really want, Kobe vs Lebron. Remember when Lebron and the Cleveland Cavaliers, finished with the best record in the NBA, but failed to reach the Finals? Nike had promoted the Kobe-Lebron hype thinking they would cash in when both reached the Final, but it didn’t happen. Oh, Kobe and the Lakers were there, but no Lebron, no Finals for the Cavs. Well, this time they are waiting to see if Kobe can make it back to the Finals and if he can, then the shoe-saga continues.
