Kobe-tastic. Kobe-rific. No matter your choice of name-praise, it’s clear–Kobe is one of the greatest B-ballers of all time. Kobe, along with Shaquille O’Neal led the Lakers to three consecutive NBA championships from 2000 to 2002. After a bit of drama in the early to mid 2000s with Shaq (which led to Shaq’s departure from the Lakers in ’04) and a very public indiscretion in a Colorado Hotel, Kobe had to rebuild his image and his team. With some brilliant image PR, a gargantuan yellow diamond ring to help his wife with some selective amnesia, and a new crucial crop of teammates, Kobe came back with a vengeance, leading the Lakers to two more consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010 while being crowned MVP on both occasions. And if Kobe has anything to do with it, a three-peat in 2011 is on the horizon. These Gucci sunglasses are just the right amount of bling for this mega-star-athlete. Choose from a wide range of eight frame colors. Simply Kobe-licious.  –rpuccia
