The NBA Playoffs continued over the past weekend, as we got a look a select number of new sneakers as the teams shifted ‘Home’ and ‘Away’. Starting off, Kobe Bryant wore a PE Black/Yellow colorway of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite (not far off from the Gold), as he led the Lakers to a 3-1 lead over the Nuggets. The Lakers’ local counterparts also featured some new sneakers, like CP3’s ‘Home’ colorway of the Playoffs joints and Eric Bledsoe’s LeBron 9 ‘Christmas’. Out East, Carmelo pulled out NY’s first Playoff win in years in a White/Orange/Grey PE of the Jordan Melo M8, while Rajon Rondo led the Celtics to a 3-1 advantage over the Hawks while wearing the Nike Zoom Huarache 2k4 in a White/Green PE (Rondo once mentioned that the 2k4 was the most comfortable basketball shoe he ever wore). More of NBA Feet below, so take a look and stay tuned for more updates! Photos: espn
Either the JB P.I.T. 2 are a performance monster... or all the JB athletes are fulfilling a contractual obligation.
i like the kobe elite pe but i would have preferred black-concord icey sole like homes. to me gold>yellow aka maize! nice shoes and nike messed up the elite drop big time!
It was the last play of them game. He was trying to foul him, hoping there was more time on the clock
No hope for the Knicks, it would be foolish for the Knicks (or Lin) to rush back. Dude has multi-million dollar contract offers waiting for him once the offseason arrives.
