Do sneakers really enhance the abilities of a player? That debate can go both ways. Are the athletes of today that much more advanced, or is the overall better conditioning and longevity due to advanced products? According to this latest list by Sneaker Report, the players of the past might’ve benefited from something lighter, softer, and stronger than was available back in the day. Would Jordan have dominated even more if the Flight Plate on the XX8 was available? Would the Mailman Karl Malone have delivered on Sundays if the Hyperposite was there for him? What if the adidas Rose 3 was there for the already unguardable Bob Cousy – would he be the single greatest player ever? There are some interesting scenarios laid out for twenty-five NBA legends and the shoes they should’ve worn in this list, so check out some of their proposed thoughts below and head to Sneaker Report for the entire feature.

This is pointless. Those shoes didn't exist then, and it's kind of sad that some of them exist now. High prices for cheap crap. The only new basketball shoes that are worth a damn are the Lebron X's.
