What company did Kobe sign his first shoe deal with?

Via: Getty Images
Correct! Wrong!

After a low-key rookie season coming off the bench, Kobe Bryant would take his game to the next level and become one of the best players in the NBA by the 2000-01 season. His Adidas shoes were along for the ride and, other than their association with Bryant, are most memorable for their crazy designs.

Reportedly unhappy with the KOBE TWO, Bryant officially made the switch to Nike in 2003 following the end of his contract with Adidas during the summer of 2002. This did not prevent work on his next Adidas shoe, and images have surfaced for what would have been the follow-up to the KOBE TWO, although no official name was provided.

What Was The Rap Group Name Kobe Was Apart Of?

Via: Fox Sports
Correct! Wrong!

As early as 1992, Kobe was a member of a rap group called CHEIZAW. CHEIZAW was formed during Kobe’s days as a student at Lower Merian High School in Philadelphia where he joined a couple of high school buddies to form a megatron Wu-like rap collective. According to Grantland, when Kobe came back to the United States at the age of 14, he was recruited by a young gentleman named Anthony Bannister, who worked at the local community center who Kobe’s father, Joe Bryant, was the fitness director.

The group’s name, CHEIZAW, is an acronym inspired by the Chi Sah gang from the kung fu movie, The Kid With the Golden Arm. Featuring members Broady Boy, Tréoz, Russell Howards, Akia Stone, Jester, and Sai Bey, who were all for the most rap underground battle like rappers, Kobe, a varsity playing freshman was their lyrical poet who brought on the balance.

Words, from the duo Punch and Words, recalled his impression on the late Lakers icon with Grantland when he battled against CHEIZAW saying it was obvious he was inspired by Canibus.

“You could tell he was influenced by Canibus,” said Words. “Kobe had a quality of lyrics. When he got into the cipher, you didn’t look at him as just Kobe. You looked at him as a dude that could rhyme and if you sleep on him, you could get embarrassed.”
