Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant go way back to their days when Paul was still a New Orleans Hornet. The two have been great friends ever since and gave each other the utmost respect.
After their final game against each other, last night, Kobe decided to give CP3 a pair of signed Jordans that basically called him one of the greatest of all time.

Paul and Bryant could have played together if the NBA did not veto the trade that would have sent Paul to the Lakers. Paul and Bryant could have formed the ultimate duo together, but too bad we won’t be able to see that happen anymore.
These sneakers are a sign of respect and a passing of the torch to one of Kobe’s many envious fans. CP3 and Bryant have been two of the best guards in the past decade and there is little argument against this.
