It’s Time To Chat With Kobe

At 1 PM Pacific (4 PM over here on the left coast), Nike is hosting an interactive webcast with Kobe Bryant to discuss the design innovation behind the new and unconventional Zoom Kobe IV, which, as you can see here, is pretty fresh. Fans—and we know he’s got a lot on here—can submit their questions for Kobe during the webcast. Log on here to take part.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    DAMMIT! Don’t wanna register, so I can’t do it . . . I hate Kobe anyways . . .

  • http://www.mybleedingfingertips.blogspot.com/ Myles Brown

    Meh.

  • http://si damascus

    im register..ima ask him hella question..cause kobe needs to step his game up..hes doesnt look like the best rite now like in the past 6 years…kobe needs to be kobe

  • ciolkstar

    No thanks. Kobe = garbage. But I actually like the kicks.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    I thought this was supposed to be about his shoe design.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    If you could kill any of your former teammates and get away with it, who would you kill first?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    Ugly shoe.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Alternate shoe-related question: Who do you think you are, Gilbert Arenas?

  • texaspete

    ask him if he did it

  • Gumdrop

    Damascus has got this one on lock. Any further questions are unnessecary.

  • AD25

    Way too late to be relevant, Kobe will use this time to lyrically respond to Shaq’s free-style.

  • J-O

    LOL at russ

  • http://where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    There is an error on the page right now. Is everybody getting that.

  • niQ

    they just look like a low cut of the hyperdunks. and they even look like those shoes that were promoted for hockey players. LOL

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne

    I like ‘em. The link is working from here.

  • http://si damascus

    let the question begin..i got this on lock…ima be personally…cause kobe aint playing like kobe…kobe is the man…but he is not playing up to his standards

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    I’m sure they’re letting the really hardhitting questions through.
    “Um,Kobe,why are you so,like,awesome and how do you keep that level of awesomeness up throughout a season?”

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Has anyone mentioned to him that the top half of his shoe fell off?

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Izzo: THAT WAS GOING TO BE MY NEXT QUESTION!!!!

    *sulks*

  • http://si damascus

    ciolkstar..kobe aint garebage nigga…u trippin nigga…kobe been the best for a long period of time

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    “So, are you and Shaq, like, BFFs?”

  • Kobe Bryant

    That was a hella question Damascus.
    I feel that both DWade and Lebron are great players, but my greatest competition is probably coming from myself. Nobody can push me as hard as I can push myself…except for maybe Sasha Vujacic…that guy’s a douche.

  • Kobe Bryant

    @Russ, yes Shaq and I are very close. We went wine tasting together just the other weekend.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    Kobe’s answer:”Well I usually take the Finals off”
    -
    *Waves* Thank you.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Why does “n*gga” get through the WordPress censors, but “It*lian” doesn’t? Again, WordPress sucks.

  • Kieran

    I would ask him, if like me, he gets an uncontrollable urge to punch Sasha right in his lazy eye

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    Russ:Google didn’t get through either for a long time.Wordpress is actually run by the Bush Administration.

  • Anton

    hey Kobe, tell me how your new ugly shoes taste?

  • AD25

    “What makes the relationship between you and Nike so special?”

    “The millions and millions of dollars they pay me.”

  • Anton

    ^lol

  • Anton

    Kobe just gave a nice sarcastic laugh once asked if the Miami game will be big

  • AD25

    “Yo Kobe, are you going to do anything about making this shoe affordable for more than 2% of the kids who actually play basketball today?”

  • Miguel Ferreira

    o my God this is a very bad design i am seriously dissapointed, dont getme wrong i like kobe, Wade’s the best player, though wats goin on? NIKE perhaps ur worst shoe ive seen

  • Anton

    why is there less ankle support than the Hyperdunk? makes no sense

  • http://slamonline.com Khalid Salaam

    Weird comments today

  • Anton

    looks like a skater shoe, wonder if it attracts white girls to hotel rooms

  • Ben

    Interview was awsome
    however none of my questions were answered

  • http://si damascus

    miguelferreira-wade is not the best player..rite now he is just regrouping himself…he had fell off the previous two years..he has alot of work to do

  • http://www.toronto.com Mr. 416

    Antons’ on a roll……

  • Gumdrop

    *stands up to applaud damascus’ continued dominance.

  • Anton

    I’m sure Kob had a hand in the design process, specifically, his injured pinky

  • Boing Dynasty

    hyperdunk low?

  • http://double-technical.blogspot.com Zee!

    Seriously, is Nike just half steppin with the designs on the kicks? These look like some glorified dunks.

  • Harlem_World

    I have a question: Kobe do you think you are better than Clyde Drexler, straight up, and if so, please explain why?

  • vmcb

    Anton, that doesn’t look like a skater shoe.

  • Harlem_World

    I have another question: Last year in the NBA finals, with the world watching and the chance to move your reputation up into another realm by doing what you are supposed to do best (takeover), you were alarmingly quiet – what happened? Did you choke or is it that you really just aren’t quite as good as we have all been led to believe?

  • Harlem_World

    Since the room is sitting in stunned silence, I’ll ask another: Mr Bryant, how does it feel knowing you were not quite able to catch the old ’23′ and now the new ’23′ has pushed out ahead of you for good now too?

  • Harlem_World

    OK, let me take the questioning in another direction since you seem to be having problems with these…Knowing what you know now, how would you have handled the Chris Childs incident differently?

  • Harlem_World

    How is Luke Walton in the league?

  • http://iwantoutofokc.com/ James the balla

    Harlem has hemroids im guessing? Thats why he is so disgrintled?

  • http://iwantoutofokc.com/ James the balla

    grun**

  • http://iwantoutofokc.com/ James the balla

    Ok, let me bring the questioning to a …. hooooo…. nuuuvvvvaaaa…. leeevvvvooooo… Harlem, this is for you: If you were a white girl, would you let Kobe impregnate you through you vag, or your as$hole? And while pregnant would you still sniff Lebricks panties, or would you just wear them on your head and pet your cat?

  • http://iwantoutofokc.com/ James the balla

    Harlem … I hope reading my comments made you realize how ignorant and “retarted” your non sense questions are. Go to DIME magazine please and thank you. Have a nice day.

  • Harlem_World

    *sigh* Education is fundamental…and if that fails, there is always spell check my uninitiated friend.

  • Jackie Moon

    What a maroon.

  • Anton

    Kobe Bryant doesn’t care about those “who know great kicks” people

  • Harlem_World

    And Kobe Bryant is not going to read these comments either. To be real, I think Kobe stopped caring about what ‘the people’ think after he got booed out of Philly at the ASG. On topic, in the right colorways, I think these shoes could be a good look.

  • http://www.ojhoops.blogspot.com the baconator

    Let’s bring in Gilbert Arenas. I’d love to talk shoes with him. “So Gil, why the hell do your last 3 editions of the Gil Zero look exactly the same? Seriously, for a dude as creative as yourself I’d expect a bit more originality.”

  • Anton

    Kobe’s wife looked like a tramp at his MVP ceremony

  • j-smoov 5

    It’s ok…

  • http://www.mykal1.blogspot.com MyKal

    Any awesomeness the Zoom Waffle (Zoom Kobe 3) or the Hyperdunk had is killed by this thing. (See the vile mess of spacefoam and swoosh located at the top of this page)

  • Andrew

    I have my pair of the home colourway on the way, Jan 1… can’t wait…

  • http://www.bbaxn.com Darksaber

    Wow, the chance to ask Mambiatch questions about his Nasa shoe….pass.

  • Gumdrop

    Kobe, if you could join the cast of any TV show, past or present, which TV show would you choose?

  • Kobe Bryant

    Wow. Great question Gumdrop. I guess that I’d have to choose CSI Miami, because I love watching it on TV and I feel that Horatio is the acting equivalent of myself.

  • Gumdrop

    Kobe, if you could time travel back to any era, which era would you travel to.

  • Gumdrop

    Sorry that was supposed to have a “?” on the end (I’m so nervous).

  • Gumdrop

    It’s ok, don’t be nervous Gumdrop. I think that I would most want to travel back to dinosaur times and maybe ride a triceratops or something like that. But, if I’m being responsible I think that I’d go back to pre-WWII Germany, and use my ultimate basketball skills to defeat Hitler for the good of mankind. You know, like how Michael Jordan used his skills in ‘Pro-stars.’

  • Kobe Bryant

    Sorry, that was supposed to come from me.

  • Gumdrop

    Wow, great answer. It seems that Slamonline mixed our names up.

  • Kobe Bryant

    Ha. They sure did Gumdrop.

  • Gumdrop

    One last question: If you and assistant coach Kurt Rambis were stuck on a desert island alone together, what would you do to pass the time?

  • baller

    Everyone on here are all a bunch of dweebs and haters!I’m shocked that even Russ has joined the crowd and is drunk with hate!

  • Kobe Bryant

    Hmmm. Well I guess that I’d try to get to know the real Kurt Rambis, learn his hopes, his fears. Then with his help I’d construct a basketball court on the beach and play him in game after game of one on one. If he ever beat me, or tried to quit I would absolutely freak out.

  • Kobe Bryant

    You said it baller.

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne

    Pretty lame. Sorry I didn’t shut off the comments like I did the other day. All this was was a link to the Nike chat for people who were interested.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    I have a question for Kobe: Why did you pass the ball to Luke Walton?

  • baller

    Ben, you should have seen this coming. It happens all the time when Kobe is involved.

  • http://www.bbaxn.com Darksaber

    Damn. Gumdrop sure showed us his split personality. Nice “interview”.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    LMFAO @ Gumdrop’s name mix-up, 9:00 pm.

  • FACE FROM NORRISTOWN

    kobe sneakers dont sell cuz of the colors cobody wear those colors

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/mandiixoxo Amanda

    haha nice mixup GumDrop you made my day

  • http://y7mail dave

    these shoes heaps mad

  • http://thesportsdiaryonline.blogspot.com Roy

    I never liked Kobe’s shoes… This shoe is just ugly… He’s wearing low tops now? And I thought Gil is the only one (I believe) to ball on low tops in the NBA.

  • LeeVan

    Dear Kobe,

    How DOES Shaq’s a$$ taste?

    TADOW!

  • Kieran

    Dear Kobe,
    How come you cant even be better than Mike at shoes?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=627550406 KA

    gumdrop bryant just made this the best comment section ever. kobe, true or false: you suck.

  • Damien

    These comments are mental.

    Damascus: No more from you please, you don’t seem very intelligent.

    Anton: Don’t beat on a man’s wife, just uncalled for.

  • Cizzo

    I got 1 question can I get 100 pairs of these KB4′s, Smokin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

  • http://slamonline.com Booman

    kobe my favorite player…but nike be makin him sum garbage shoes.

  • Rich

    To anyone who likes good shoes, you would understand me when I say these are TIGHT. I mean, NO SHOE LOOKS LIKE THIS. And you can wear them off the court. I will definitely get a pair of these. Nike really did it this time. I read that the Hyperdunks were the second fastest basketball shoes ever, and these will be right behind them. I mean, they look comfortable, simple as that. I might not even ball in these. Kobe runs things when it comes to basketball, for real.

  • p mo

    Kobe is the best and still the hungriest there is..once he wins the ship this year hes gonna be sayin to all of u dumbasses “Haters (which is most of America), how does my ass taste” (with a big grin on his face and a Finals MVP trophy in hand)..i can hardly wait

  • http://yahoo gaby

    nice shoes common kobe get in next year slam dunk contest you can use your shoes it will be incredible to see you head to head with lebron in the past the very best players dont only prove them selves on the court but in everything that haved to be with basketball ,. and if you win it will be a pleasure to you to win to a yunger more atlethic guy like lebron you will prove you are the best do it for your fans you will be inmortal if you do this.
