Darius Slay like so many athletes in the world today, grew up inspired by Kobe Bryant and his relentless work ethic. Bryant was an Eagles fan and after being traded to Philadelphia, Slay honored the late Lakers star by changing his number to 24.
Against the Washington Football team last Sunday, Slay warmed up in a black Bryant Lakers jersey.
On Sunday Slay will pay tribute again, this time wearing an awesome pair of especially custom,
‘Black Mamba’ Nike Cleats.

For Slay, it was Bryant “doing anything and be willing to do anything to be great”.
