Barring injury, John Wall has more or less already surpassed the output from the Washington Wizards’ last number one draft choice. Wall’s eye-popping athleticism erases any memories of Kwame Brown, even as their biggest star of the last decade seems to be acting out for attention as usual. And just as he’s the bright spot in a hectic mess in the Capital, John Wall is emerging as Reebok’s brightest basketball star. Without Yao and Iverson to count on, RBK is looking to parlay Wall’s rising star into a bit of the kind of buzz you might expect from the guy who drafted Kwame.
With the Reebok ZigTech Slash ‘Gold Rush’, the Vector brand is going even further than the hardest-to-get Air Jordan Flight Club or Quickstrike releases by limiting these joints to a mere 12 pairs! You’ll have to follow Wall’s Twitter feed to find out when and where they’ll be for sale, but we know for sure that the Wizards’ 1 will rock these golden Zig Slashes when the Wiz open their season against the Knickerbockers at MSG on November 5th. via Dime
