Dirk Nowitzki might go down as the most underrated and overshadowed Hall-of-Famer in history. The long-haired and lanky German went to the Finals twice in the era rife with elite-level superstars like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Kobe Bryant, and some could argue that he should’ve had not one, but two NBA titles (both against the Miami Heat). On June 12th, 2011, Dirk let the Dallas Mavericks to its first ever NBA Title, repaying owner Mark Cuban for his loyalty and giving the city of Dallas a true sports hero to idolize. With the NBA Playoffs now in full force, Nike Sportswear spotted Dirk with these sick Air Force 1 Bespokes, constructed in a faded black denim with ‘DIRK’ stitched on the heel, his jersey number of ’41’ on the tongue, and a dope silhouette logo on the heel, mimicking his trademark asymmetrical fadeaway jumper. We’ve got some image stills and a video below, so take a look and let us know if you think Dirk has what it takes to come back from down 2-0 against the Thunder and repeat as an NBA Champ!
i like these but the real custom made dirk's where made about a month ago on dunks. (funny that both me and the designer of these are named "mateo") http://www.mateo-acrylics.com/apps/photos/photo?p... ^^^^show me some love sneaker news^^^^^
nice dunks and paint job, but this AF1 in suede and denim in black grey with blue stitchings are very well executed..only thing the dirk fade shot pose is better on dunks:D
i feel like that's not his "signature" jump shot pose though. the one leg up shouldn't be extended out like that...but eh, still nice overall
LOL he definitely saw another Finals series, something more from Lebron in last qtrs would have been appreciated by miami fans ..btw miami offense was one of the worst in last season..and 2012 isn't that much better
You definitely have watched another Final series..something more from Lebron in last qtrs would have been appreciated..by Miami fans
I think the same way, and he shots with right hand so the leg on the floor should be the left imo, just watch a vid, and how could he take distance from the defender with right feet on the floor? Really nice shoes though
