Kobe Bryant might have been talking NBA basketball with Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night during the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show, but the star definitely was channeling Snooki’s fashion. The former Jersey Shore star who is known to love her leopard prints had to be impressed with the athlete as he donned a pair of leopard print sneakers during the late night interview.
As fans giggled at the pair of good looking shoes, many folks online compared the fashion style to the reality star (who has great fashion taste) and suggested that maybe she helped pick the sneakers out. While that’s unlikely, the kind reference has got to be making Snooki smile. One fashion Kobe Bryant won’t be wearing much longer is the Laker’s uniform. Hinting his career is coming to an end, it appears the days on the court are numbered.
“[It is] coming to an end. I’m happy that it will be in a Lakers uniform. It will be soon,” said Kobe Bryant on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! “When I came in the league, I had an Afro. I can’t grow one now if I tried.”
While the fans in Los Angeles will miss the basketball star when he decides to step off the court, for now they can only admire his athletic talent and great shoe choices!
