One intense NBA rivalry that has coole down a bit over the last few years has been the feud between future Hall of Fame big men Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs and Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics. Both were tagged by Nike early on in their careers and were even featured together in one of the more memorable Nike basketball adverts ever (Kevin Garnett taking on the world in a game of pick-up ball), so while their careers were destined for similar paths of greatness, the two couldn’t have been farther from each other in every other aspect outside of the game. Duncan made his presence known with his silent charisma, while KG is noted for his notorious in-game trash-talking sparked by an intense flame fanned by the spirit of competition, and because both have stayed true to the fundamentals of the game, both continue to be forces to be reckoned with.

Perhaps this June, NBA fans could be in for one final showdown between Duncan and KG, and it’ll certainly be one to watch because KG and Duncan, quite frankly, simply don’t like being around one another. Going back to KG’s Nike’s roots – the 6’11″ forward was outfitted with the Air Flightposite line (which later became associated with his name), and today we get a look at one of the rarest PEs of the era –  a Black/White colorway with KG’s initials on the ‘tongue’ and ‘The Future’ labeled on the heel-tabs. So: Flightposite, or Total Foamposite Max? Which Foam-based shoe made for the two most dominant big-men of our generation is more treasured? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to check out the gallery of this rare PE before you head on over to the listing from masauction on eBay.

At 10th in the all time Elo ratings he’s second only to teammate Shaquille O’Neal (7th) in terms of active players, which should put some perspective on how sure-fire of a Hall of Fame selection Kevin Garnett really is.  Now one could rather convincingly argue that any system that puts LeBron James (16) and Garnett ahead of 4-time NBA Champion and perhaps the ultimate power forward Tim Duncan (18), but disputing KG’s decade and a half long run of excellence is impossible despite never getting his early Timberwolves teams past the Spurs and other Western Conference elite.  Garnett got started in the Twin Cities and this game-worn, autographed pair of Nike Air Max Tempos from his 1995-96 season (the best ever for Nike Basketball?) is a great way to commemorate a long and decorated career with a reminder of where it began, so click through to see what they look like, then check out the size 14s available now from d_g.o.a.t on eBay.

Nike Air Flightposite One – Kevin Garnett 2000 Olympics PE

Back in the 20th Century, Kevin Garnett repped Nike, taking on an entire neighborhood in a pick-up game at the park and acting as a counselor for Camp Flight. Garnett’s moved around quite a bit since then (AND1, adidas, and now ANTA), but his short-lived stint with the Swoosh is still recognized today, with the recent re-released of the Nike Air Flightposite II as a reminder that KG was once a Nike athlete. Garnett was still under the Nike umbrella in 2000, when he was part of the Team USA Basketball in the 2000 Olympics, and was the recipient of this gorgeous Nike Air Flightposite One Player Exclusive with his Team USA ’10′ stitched on the upper ankle collar. It features a white upper with a navy blue secondary color. The rarity of these PEs is indeterminable, but be certain that these are among the most hard-to-find Nike PEs ever created! Check out the extra images below, and to test your bidding skills, take a look at the auction from strongsauce on eBay.
