Around the NBA: Sneakers

The average NBA athlete likely has more pairs of shoes than the collections of three sneaker heads combined, and half of them probably worn only for the half hour they jogged around the hardwood.  However, we’ve come to realize that it’s more than just premium leather and basketball friendly technology to be cherished.  It’s about knowing what pair of shoes will boost your attributes come game time. So whether it’s Mike Bibby wanting to feel like Mike wearing the Air Jordan III “Back Flips” or Rip Hamilton wearing the soon to be released Air Jordan IV “White/Cement”, a chunk of a players’ performance is either credited or blamed on the shoes they were wearing on the court that night.  And if a player is skilled enough to establish themselves as a prolific combo player, they’ve got nothing to worry about but to slip on their own signature shoes like Derrick Rose’s adiZero 2.5’s and Lebron’s “Back in Black” model.
