We’ve had the discussion here on Sneaker News about which current NBA players deserve a signature model, but what about those whose times in the spotlight have come and gone? Complex has taken on the task of compiling a list of players who they believe deserved their own model and had the star power to move some units, but never got to that level for whatever reason. Guys included range from Oscar Robertson, John Stockton, Manute Bol, Dell Curry, and more. See a small selection after the jump and then get the full piece from Complex.

You could probably make a case for Oscar, Isaiah, and Wilt. Not sure why Manute Bol warrants a signature sneaker. Great shotblocker, decent 3 point shooter, but honestly, an average player at best.


John Stockton, while Hall of Fame worthy for his playing skills, am really not sure how kids would lust after a pair of John Stocktons. Unless, it was marketed towards those middle-aged white men in nuthuggers that preach nothing but basketball fundamentals. (not that there is anything wrong with that; just saying though)
