Who wouldn't want an ostrich-leather-embossed basketball named "The Natural"? And only the most ardent Laker-hater wouldn't love a purple-black-and-yellow, handcrafted rock called the "L.A.yup Serpent," right? Kobe's probably got a gross of these things in his garage. Only problem is, you'd never actually play with it, would you?

Eh, maybe that's not really the point of these things. They're more art than equipment. They might just be the most exquisitely designed balls you can find. We haven't exactly looked around for diamond-studded footballs or anything, but we're pretty sure these Unofish balls are a lot more reasonably priced than something like that.
