The ‘other’ NBA season continued down in Florida when Dwight Howard hosted the D12 Foundation Celebrity All-Star Game at the the University of Central Florida. This game featured a bit of a twist; the two teams were divided up into New School and Old School, with the former consisting of current NBA players and the latter featuring former NBA stars like Penny Hardaway and Steve Francis. The kicks spotted on court had a heavy ‘Air Penny’ theme, as Penny himself wore the Nike Zoom Rookie ‘Memphis Blues’ during warm-ups and switched up to the all-white Foamposite One 1-of-1 PEs for the game. Other notables included Lil’ Wayne’s Binary Blue Zoom Rookies (he coached the ‘New School’ squad) and Earl Clark’s Glow In The Darks, Gilbert Arenas’ Air Jordan VI ‘Orlando’ Customs, Steve Franchise’s Air Jordan 8.0, Quentin Richardson’s Air Jordan XI ‘DMP’, and Dwight Howard’s adiPower Howard. Check out the additional images from this great charity event below and let us know who takes the crown for the best kicks! Thanks to @notmattg!
This is an All-Star game but who all played in in it? Everybody just like like their standin around.
It seems as if they lowered the goal for Gilbert to dunk cause it looks like he's way up there!!! Either that or a trampoline..
those 6's Gil has on are too dope... like da glow in da dark & all blu rookie foams out there too... funny how dis is a Dwight Howard event & u see more pix of Penny & Gil more then u see D12 lol
I'm not a Foamposite Ones fan, but those all white ones that Penny was rocking are gorgeous. As much as I hate to admit it.
I see some heat out there. I am guess that is Q. Richardson in the Concords? Penny looks like he did in his pro days. That's that Melanin!! lol
Those Rookie LWPs starting to grow on me. Nice. Also good to see Steve Francis out there. Wondered what happened to him?
