After Kobe and Lebron are done (which will be years from now) playing in the league.. will they still have signature shoes coming out like Jordan? Should they?.. opinions?
but Penny said the reason his signature line stopped was because all his shoe designers had went over to JB... and besides.. they stopped his line in his 6th season I believe.. after the 50 game season..

Not to brag about this, but people use to get killed over the latest Jordans that is how "important" those shoes were. I don't know anyone that has ever got killed over a pair of Lebrons. The only real people that buy Lebron's or Kobe's are fans of those players. People that didn't watch basketball wore Jordans. One could argue that the brand has become bigger than the man. Half the kids that wear Jordan's now are not old enough to have watched him play. I'm going on 24 and I vaguely remember when MJ played.
tyreke evans needs a sig shoe. colorway is sooo dope.Originally Posted by BostonThreeParty
