The NBA Playoffs kicked off this weekend with back-to-back days of action-packed NBA action. The first game of has proven to be the pace-maker for these seven-game series, but as teams enter play tonight, fortunes can change. The Playoffs started off on a bit of a down note, as reigning MVP Derrick Rose and rookie phenom Iman Shumpert suffered season-ending injuries that will undoubtedly change the fortunes of their teams. There were still plenty of gallant performances to note, like Chris Paul’s daring comeback, Andrew Bynum’s triple-double, and Josh Smith’s 22-and-18 – all coming during victories. For kicks, it was our first look at the Nike Basketball Elite Series, as Kobe Bryant wore his Elite VII ‘Home’ with a purple swoosh, while LeBron wore his Elite 9 with a red swoosh. Kevin Durant, who was not included in the Elite Series, wore a clean White/Blue PE of the Zoom KD IV, and the Hyperdunk 2011 Elite was worn by Nike big-men Chris Bosh and Tyson Chandler. Check out all of the NBA action from the first two nights of NBA Playoff action and stay tuned to Sneaker News for continual coverage! Photos: yahoo
this is wat the reff says to rando " Rando clean tthis shit on the floor!" this is wat rando says back " my dick in your mouth!"
Nike got people brainwash . it doesn't matter whether its Nike , Adidas or another shoe company , Players get hurt . Does anybody remember when the Detroit Pistons trainers ban the Nike Hyperrise .
Josh Smith is an adidas athlete . . . .and he lit up KG... Jordan went down wearing nikes for 63 games Penny never recovered .. . . All this to say . . .Cats have freakish injuries, and the shoe may attribute to 5 or 10 percent of it.
man nike messed this up..the kobe and bron home pe elites were dope..save the home gold for later. nike should have dropped the white/red elite bron and the concord elite on april 28...i assume they rock road pe for road this coming weekend. nike should have went away elites may5! SMH...dope concords mamba!!! i want 40 tomorrow!
Tremendous pictures of the EXACT moments during Rose's ACL tear..at moment of impact and milliseconds after
Gotta love kobe and lebrons elite pe's! James Harden looks like he got some elite hyper dunk low pe's and amare still rocking his galaxy joints!
This is true. It's still gonna be a tough summer for Adidas Basketball. Their top 2 athletes are down.
Knicks* and just because a colorway is themed after a team doesn't mean another team can't wear them...hence the Chicago 10s that Courtney Lee rocked..fits the jerseys colors
thats why he only missed a hand full of games to injury prior to this season this just wasn't his year. your that same lame that didn't get the joke on the kardashian story mane your an idiot
