Nike introduces new Kobe Bryant advertisement: ‘Show us’

The basketball world was shook to its core when one of the greatest to ever play the game, Kobe Bryant, went down for the year with a torn Achilles tendon.

Since then, Kobe has vented on social media. He has felt frustrated — and understandably so — that at the age of 34 he must go through months of rehabilitation in his quest for a sixth championship ring.

However, if anyone can come back, it is Kobe, and he knows it.

Now, Nike is just imploring him to show us. Show us that the impossible on the hardwood is indeed possible.
