Yesterday night Sneaker News showed you a throwback gallery that featured NBA players during their college and earlier years rocking Jordans. Even after Jordan’s retirement, his influence on young aspiring basketball talents did not wane even the slightest bit. Guys like Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul grew up looking up to Michael Jordan, and today, those four players are proud owners of their own signature shoe lines, the latter two as part of the Jordan Brand team. Continuing on our feature from last night, here’s Part 2 of Sneaker News’ ‘Before They Were Pros: Air Jordan Edition,” featuring younger NBA stars and up-and-comers in Air Jordan kicks. While MJ has retired, his footprint on the game can still be seen in today’s stars, so check out this great gallery of images and let us know which NBA star is the most ‘Jordan-like’. via Kenlu and NT.
