San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan has carried the torch for Nike's Kobe Bryant signature sneaker line since the Black Mamba retired. DeRozan ushered in a new wave of Kobe retros last season with the Nike Kobe 1 Protro, including some exclusive Undefeated x Kobe 1 collabs.
This season, the 29-year old All Star has taken to the Nike Kobe 4 Protro and he broke out another exclusive colorway for Game 3 in San Antonio on Thursday night - which the Spurs won 118-108 to take a 2-1 series lead.
