Before you realize it, the NBA regular season will be over, and the Sneaker News staff will have to think long and hard about which player will be crowned the MVP of NBA Feet. Nate Robinson is a candidate worthy of notice, but was he a top contender? Despite his impressive Air Jordan rotation, he might’ve needed something to push him over the top Stallone-style, and tonight’s sneaker selection against the San Antonio Spurs might’ve put him in MVP contention. For part of the game, Nate Robinson broke out the Nike Air Yeezy 2 in the earth-shattering ‘Solar Red’ colorway – an in-game equipment selection so bold that teammate Taj Gibson couldn’t help put take a picture and call his teammate “crazy”. Of course, NateRob balled in Yeezy 2s before, but this would be the first time he’s done so in an NBA game. Check out Nate Robinson in the Air Yeezy 2 below and let us know if this makes him the NBA Feet MVP of the 2012-2013 season.
Too easy! I'd much rather see a post of Kanye West running a show in a "inline" LebronX or KDV instead of Bulls tattooed "player" wearing a Y2… What's next? French soccer player Franck Ribery playing a game in a Dunk Buffet?
Robinson took them off in the middle of the 1st quarter & put the 12's on. Either because the Yeezy's aren't comfortable enough to ball in or the coaching staff made him take them off because of NBA Uniform Regulations. Either way it was a surprise to see them on a basketball court & I don't even like the Yeezy 2's. Lol
While watchin da bulls/spurs game on espn, I jus KNEW dat blogs were gonna show nate in those yeezys. But they didn't work dat good. In da middle of da 1st qtr he took them off & put those cherry 12s on... Nate brave fa wearin them ye's in a game. But I guess he did wear da platinum pair out on those Venice courts... I see Nate wants dat King of da Court Kicks title tho
Crazy, I mean those couldn't be good performance sneakers. Its amazing that he can still perform at the highest level of competition regardless his foot wear.
