Kobe Bryant’s Protective Mask
More on Lakers.com
After an errant hit to his nose by Dwayne Wade in the 2012 NBA All-Star game, Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant has been wearing a protective facemask.
During the Lakers stop in Detroit, three new custom masks were made for him by Jeremy Murray of Michigan Hand and Sports Rehab Centers in Warren, MI.
Thanks to Kobe Bryant, Gary Vitti, and the rest of the Lakers organization for the opportunity to work with such an amazing athlete!
