A decade later, the “5 Rings” Kobe 5 returned, exclusively on the feet of Lakers star Anthony Davis in Games 3 and 4 of the 2020 Finals, inside the NBA bubble in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. During the league’s restart amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, en route to another Lakers title, the 6-foot-10 Davis wore more pairs of low-top Kobe 5s than any other player, capping off what will forever be remembered as the season both the basketball and sneaker worlds lost Bryant. “I always wore high-tops and mids, honestly. Then maybe two years ago, I was trying different shoes, put the Kobes on, and I just felt like I was faster,” Davis, a Nike-endorsed athlete, told The Undefeated in January, five days before the 41-year-old Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. “I jumped higher. I shot better. I just felt like Kobe. So I stuck with them.
DeRozan: I was always a fan of the Kobes at a different level. He’s my all-time favorite player. Me, growing up being a Laker fan and seeing the transition of his shoes, I just remember when [the 5s] dropped. I wore the 5s [my rookie year]. When the 4 and 5 dropped, with those being low-tops, especially the 5s, they were such a light shoe. I remember a lot of people used to complain about them, ‘Oh, you’re going to hurt your ankle. They’re too light.’
