The Second Round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs is mid-way through and we’ve already seen an impressive library of sneakers from the games biggest stars and even the lesser-known sneakerhead ballers. The two names to highlight this weekend are both from Los Angeles – Kobe Bryant and young swingman Nick Young of the Clippers; Kobe shed ‘Elite’ by wearing a White/Purple/Green PE of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII, which he followed with the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Christmas’, but Nick might’ve done him one better by wearing the Air Foamposite One ‘Royal’ during Sunday’s match-up against the Spurs, which followed an unprecedented appearance of the Nike Air Zoom Generation in the ‘First Game’ colorway. Of course, there’s much more to see, like Eric Bledsoe’s Metallic Red Foams, LeBron’s Black/Gold Elites, and Paul George’s sick Fade Option Kobe VII iD, so check it all out below and let us know who rocked the best kicks!

didn't that guy who made the Lebron Elites say that kobe and lebron cant wear the gold pairs due to NBA rules?? why is lebron wearing ones with gold on them then??
Yo is Nick throwing up C's? I remember he had a dunk against some team when he was on the Wizards and he threw up gang signs. Hard. WTF?
Nick Young aka Swaggy P FTW! Royal Foams would've been tough enough, but "1st Game" Zoom Generation are by & far the dopest and most expected "Kicks-On-Court" coup EVER! Not sure who had the title, Swaggy P just "usurped" it like Robert Baratheon! #GAMEOFTHRONES EXTRA POINTS too for carrying the kicks in hand!...lotion them hands though! Honorable mentions: Eric Bledsoe (Red Foams) and LeBron for ballin' his ass off (40-18-9!) and staying the course in HIS Elite Series that Nike tried to convince us were worth the $60+ up charge, yet Kobe & Blake don't seem to be buying in!
