Spalding’s Latest Release Celebrates Kobe Bryant’s Black Mamba Persona

words by claudia

Following the first release from Spalding’s Kobe 94 Series—the Kobe Bryant 24K 94 Series Basketball—comes the second rendition of its embossed snakeskin design. This overt print pays tribute to Bryant’s ‘Black Mamba’ persona on the court—a nickname he gave himself inspired by the code name for a deadly assassin in Quentin Tarantino‘s 2003 movie “Kill Bill”.

Printed on premium composite material, the design beams in luxurious tones of grey and silver symbolic of Bryant’s constant growth and renewal. The ball is complete with an embossed Kobe Bryant signature and packaged in a special 94 Series display box.

The 94 Series is a line of limited edition basketball products reinvented from its roots of the original Spalding basketball presented in 1894. For other information and to purchase the Kobe 94 Series Silver, please visit
