This Saturday, Nike Basketball will host an inter-borough showdown between Queens and the Bronx as part of the Battle of the Boroughs event. The players representing each borough will be wearing the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 ‘Battle of the Boroughs’ in some familiar colorways that we might not instantly associate with hooping.
