The globalization of the game of basketball was highlighted in 2012 not only because of the Olympic Games, but from the buzz surrounding an Asian-American kid from the Bay Area, who captured the hearts of basketball fans around the world. Jeremy Lin’s rise to stardom was a story unlike any other in the history of the NBA; from being undrafted out of Harvard to being the center of an awkward bidding war between two NBA franchises, Jeremy Lin continues to show his effusive gratitude regardless of what team he suits up for. This ‘Son Of The Dragon’ Pack of the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Low – Lin’s unofficial shoe – is inspired by 2012′s Year of the Dragon festivities, using rich colorways and inspired graphics around both shoes. Lin was recently in Taiwan for a basketball clinic and to introduce the shoes himself, and luckily for us, the shoes will see a release soon enough (possibly as an Asia-exclusive). We’ve got a nice detailed look at both colorways below, so take a look and let us know which of the two ‘Sons’ you like better! via NikeBasketballTW
