Chicago Bulls star DeMar DeRozan reveals a fun little story about him and Kobe Bryant, and why only Kobe wears
Today, we know DeMar DeRozan as somewhat of a fan of Nike’s Kobe sneaker line.
Over the course of his career, fans have seen the man put on Kobe after Kobe in every game, with the man rarely choosing to experiment with a sneaker that wasn’t one.

We won’t lie, we’re not even sure what DeMar DeRozan was thinking when he decided to wear a pair of Jordans instead of his usual Kobe.
Wearing someone’s idol shoes instead of the ones you usually wear is one thing. But not only did he change said person’s shoes to do it, and he did it in a match against him.
Yeah, DeMar DeRozan was clearly asking on this one.
