In preparation for Isaiah Thomas’ return to the court, Nike has introduced a special edition Kobe A.D. that the Cavs’ guard figures to lace up when he finally makes his season debut.
The “Mighty I.T” Nike Kobe A.D. comes dressed in wine and gold, as a nod to the Cavs uniforms, and also features a smaller Nike swoosh inside a larger swoosh silhouette which is of course inspired by the All-Star guard’s 5’9 frame. Additionally, Thomas’ initials are stamped on the heel above Kobe Bryant’s logo.
According to J23app, the “Mighty I.T.” Kobe A.D. is scheduled to release on January 6th, prior to the Cavs game against the Orlando Magic.
It’s still unclear when Isaiah Thomas will be healthy enough to play but he’ll likely be making his debut any day now. Tyronn Lue has already ruled him out for tonight’s game against the Kings, but he left the door open for Cleveland’s final game of 2017 – a Saturday night matchup in Utah.
