Black Mamba: Milano Kalibro Kobe Preview
Kobe Bryant is no stranger to Italy. The NBA champion's father played professional ball in Italy from 1984-91, so Kobe is well versed in the culture and language. It comes as no surprise that KB24 joined the latest Nike campaign celebrating Italian sports standouts. Shot in vintage Italian film-noir style, the new the Milano Kalibro Kobe teaser shows Kobe along side other Italian sports stars including Alberto Aquilani, Marco Belinelli, Gennaro Gattuso, Claudio Marchisio, Marco Materazzi and Giampaolo Pazzini.
Bryant is currently in negotiations to play in Italy if the NBA lockout continues to go unresolved, so this campaign may have came at a great time. Check out pics of video of Kobe's European tour at KB24.com
