Video: Is Kobe Bryant announcing the Kobe 10 or the Kyrie 1?

In this short video published by Nike Basketball recently, Kobe Bryant discusses how he works with Nike designers on his signature footwear line. Is this an illusive nod to an upcoming Kobe 10, or maybe a Kyrie Irving 1?

Yes, we’re speculating. There’s no mention of a Kobe 10 surrounding this video. In fact, there’s no mention of anything significant in or around this video. The only thing it seems to be trying to achieve is to encourage people to ‘RSVP’ to watch the next chapter unfold on December 3rd. The RSVP page does have a little more info, but it’s still completely vague …

‘Join Nike Basketball for an exclusive glimpse into a groundbreaking moment in our team’s history. The event will be live streamed from New York.’

My only other wild prediction of what they could possibly be hyping this much would be Kobe’s retirement from basketball, but I highly doubt that’s going to happen, especially after all his talk post-injury. Let’s just cross our fingers that it’s a new shoe. Other speculation has surrounded Kyrie Irving and the idea of a Kyrie 1 shoe. If you type ‘Kyrie’ into the search bar of Nike.com you’ll be greeted with a flashing logo and the same date that this video is promoting. Maybe Kyrie’s first shoe will be part of the Kobe line, expanding it like Nike have with Melo on the Jordan line? More speculation.

For now, we can only RSVP and wait …
