Update: The Nike Kobe AD City of Compton also known as DeMar DeRozan PE is inspired by his memory of watching Kobe Bryant play against the Utah Jazz in the 1997 playoffs. Bryant’s “airball game” taught the legend how to deal with adversity and showed DeRozan that resilience was key to success on court.
