Nike Goes with Kobe

Photos of Kobe Bryant are being used for Nike ads, which appear in Sports Illustrated


The athlete is back. For the very first time since his arrest two years ago for an alleged assault on a female employee at a Colorado resort, Kobe Bryant has his photos being used for Nike ads, which happen to appear in Sports Illustrated. Speaking about the use of Bryant's image, Nike spokesman Rodney Knox explained, "Nike agrees with most NBA observers that Kobe ranks among the very best players in the NBA, and his training and preparation are key elements of his game." And thus, the athlete name appeared in an ad earlier this year.
