Michael Pietrus Gave Kobe’s Shoes The Boot
Orlando Magic guard Mickael Pietrus has worn the Kobe Bryant’s basketball shoes this season, but now that Pietrus will have the tough task of defending Mr. Bryant, he has stepped out of Bryant’s shoes. I guess familiarity breathes contempt.
Pietrus, a shooting guard who also helped defend LeBron James in the Eastern Conference finals will be wearing something a bit more old school – hmm, maybe Jordan’s.
“I have Kobe shoes at my house, but I’m going to play with Michael Jordan shoes,” Pietrus said.
No matter which pair of shoes Pietrus wears, slowing down Kobe is going to be a tough assignment as Pietrus has readily acknowledged.
Good luck Pietrus, it might come down to the shoes and footworks.
