The day that was in danger of never happening is finally here – NBA Media Day! It’s the perfect opportunity for NBA stars to re-introduce themselves to the media and the fans, and also a first look at some familiar faces in new places. We’ll let the NBA blogs handle that drama, because we’re here to look at the kicks! Starting off, Joe Johnson of the Atlanta Hawks was rocking the Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’, while Southern Conference rivals Orlando Magic forward Quentin Richardson wore his Air Jordan XIII PE in White/Royal. The Knicks frontcourt of Melo, STAT, and Tyson Chandler got together for a nice photo, while Kobe Bryant posed with veteran Derek Fisher and new coach Mike Brown. Other interesting notes: Monta Ellis, formerly with AND1, is seen wearing the Air Jordan 8.0 (that’s a great pick-up for Jumpman if he’s a full time member), and LeBron James rocking the Home/Scarface LeBron 9. There’s a lot more to see below, so take a look and get ready to kick off a season-long series of NBA Feet features! via Yahoo!.
