“It’s gotta be the shoes.”

A statement by the great Mars Blackmon that still lives fresh today. After doing his best to check reigning MVP LeBron James in the Eastern Conference Finals, Mickael Pietrus will do his best to guard last year’s MVP Kobe Bryant. Not an easy task for anymore, so Mike figured he’d switch things up.

While Pietrus has been rockin’ the Nike Zoom Kobe IVs for the majority of the season, now that he’s going up against Black Mamba means Pietrus is changing his kicks.

“I have [Kobe shoes] at my house, but I’m going to play with Michael Jordan shoes,” Pietrus said, the newspaper reported.

Not a bad idea. If you need to channel the best, why not wear the best.

If you were Pietrus, would you keep wearing the Kobes?strong>
