The First Round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs is nearing its end, with two match-ups waiting for a decisive Game 7 to be determined. Kobe and the Lakers failed to close out their showdown with the Nuggets thanks to Ty Lawson’s career game (balling in the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cool Grey’). The other LA team is still stuck in First Round limbo, as the Grizzlies staved off elimination with a key Game 5 victory. But six of the eight Second Round teams have already been established – one of them being the Miami Heat, who finally extinguished the battered Knicks in Game 5. To round out the headlines from the last two nights: The Sixers ‘upset’ the Rose-less Bulls, Tracy McGrady still hasn’t seen the Second Round, and Blake Griffin’s Hyperdunk Elites go under the microscope.

We just showed you the Griffin’s Trainer 1.3 Mid iD he mocked up with a LA-home look and now it’s the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 he helped to usher in that gets the ‘Blake Show’ treatment. BG32 notes in a video that you can see after the jump, that he loves the Hyperdunk 2011′s slimmed down, flexible feel, and apparently he’s not alone. Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson “doesn’t wanna have the same thing on as somebody else,” and his rich and creamy HD2k11 will make a nice homecoming present when he returns from playing in Lithuania. Peep the video after the jump and go ahead and get started with your designs, as the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 iD is available today!
