From one legend to another, Michael Jordan showed his respect to Kobe Bryant on Saturday by giving him a memorable gift.
As a retirement present, His Airness gave Bryant a full set of all 30 Air Jordans in both black and white. Here is a shot of all the glorious sneakers lined up:

Bryant was clearly pleased with the gesture:
Making things even sweeter, Bryant will be auctioning off the black pairs on EBay, per Sole Collector. The bidding starts on 12 p.m. ET on Saturday and will run for 24 hours, and all proceeds will be going to Jordan Brand Wings, a community outreach program that has locations across the globe.
This is a clear win-win for all involved, including any sneaker heads out there hoping to get their hands on some truly unique items.
