5 Reviews

1996-1997 was Kobe Bryant’s rookie year, as he became the first guard to ever be chosen right out of high school. Kobe became the youngest champion of the Slam Dunk Contest and the youngest player to ever start in the NBA during his rookie season. This Royal Blue / Dark Blue jersey from Bryant’s rookie season is the Lakers’ classic blue alternate jersey, featuring a gold embroidered NBA logo to celebrate the NBA’s 50th Anniversary. Even though Kobe was assigned this jersey in his rookie season, he did not check into the game but did wear the jersey in 2003 when they wore it for Hardwood Nights. Rep the Lakers jersey in style with this Kobe Bryant #8 Hardwood Classics Throwback Los Angeles Lakers NBA Royal Blue Rookie Authentic Jersey.
