PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Kobe Bryant agreed to terms with Nike on Monday, becoming the latest basketball star to sign with the sneaker giant.

Bryant, who paid $8 million to get out of his six-year contract with Adidas Salomon about a year ago, wore several brands of shoes last season while negotiating with Nike and Reebok. Nike declined to disclose terms of the deal or possible plans for a Bryant signature shoe or apparel line.

I heard in various sports radio reports that in terms of money, it is about half of the 90 million that Lebron got.

You know what, even though his contract isnt up to where Bron's is, it doesnt really matter, u know? Kobe will soon have his own brand, so when that happens, they'll be left in the dust.. lol.. But I cant wait for his gear to come out on tha market! :man1:

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

BEST VIDEO EVER ... AND AND THE SECOND BEST.

Yes and who cares if he's half of LeBron's. Kobe just wants a good shoe deal to work with him, and hopefully, he found this in Nike.
