Earlier this week, Kobe Bryant requested "no more gifts" during his retirement tour. But the Raptors weren’t going to let Bryant leave without a memory.
After the Raptors handed the Lakers a 102-93 loss, Toronto star DeMar DeRozan gave Kobe a pair of custom shoes. Described by Sole Collector as "Liquid Gold" Nike Kobe 10 EXT Mids, the shoes have Kobe-inspired graphics on the right and Toronto details on the left. The Raptors also threw in a matching hat.
As DeRozan explained on Twitter: "We couldn’t let @kobebryant leave without a token of our appreciation. A @Raptors gift for one of the GOATs."
