Being from Los Angeles, Paul George grew up being a Lakers fan and trying to the play the game like the legend, Kobe Bryant. When Kobe was doing his farewell tour, he was giving inspiration and personal challenges to players around the league who he thought had the “mamba mentality” and PG was one of them. Since Paul George has been marked with this killer instinct, Nike is ready to recognize that tenacity with the PG 2 ‘Mamba Mentality’ edition that features a colorway and design inspired by some of the more notable Nike Kobe releases of the past. This PG 2 comes dressed in a Cannon, Volt, and Purple Venom colorway that is as unique as the detailing it features. This one of a kind court sneaker features a full Purple upper that is highlighted with graphics that were used on the upper of the Kobe 6. The all over creativity is complimented by the Crimson inner sock liner, Neo-Blue laces and pops of Volt on the Swoosh and PG logo.
