Tuesday superstar Kobe Bryant reached out to Coach K of the USA Basketball team to let him know that he’s on board for the 2012 Olympics. Then later in the evening after he had announced his plans to lead Team USA to Gold in London, Kobe displayed his leadership skills on the court as the Los Angeles Lakers putting on a how-to-score clinic against the Grizzlies. The Lakers moved to 4-0 on the season with the 124-105 victory.

Although Kobe never played college basketball, Nike’s close ties to the Duke Blue Devils have always kept the school that many believe Kobe would have attended had he chose school over the NBA Draft. This Varsity Royal colorway of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI would have been a nice match to those colors worn by the “Cameron Crazies” and with just a week or so to go before the official start of the NCAA Basketball season, we’ll be on the lookout for these to appear in our Sneaker Watch coverage.

Until then enjoy this sneak preview of one of the Spring 2011 colorways of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI.
