The Los Angeles Lakers wore Kobe Bryant-themed socks in Sunday’s shocking 112-95 win over the Golden State Warriors, marking the first time that an NBA team has ever worn a piece of equipment to honor a current player.
“How about that? The power of the socks. It’s got to be the socks,” Bryant said after the game. “I think it’s cool, man. It’s cool to do stuff like that. My kids freaked out when they saw the other version of the socks that had my afro on the side. They thought that was pretty sweet. But it was fun to be a part of.”
