Welcome to the final NBA Feet feature of the 2011-2012 NBA Regular Season! We’ll keep you on track as the Playoffs move along, but there’s one last helping of NBA kicks that should have you excited for Playoff basketball. This year’s sneaker king award goes to Monta Ellis, who finished off the season wearing the Air Jordan X in 2005′s Varsity Red colorway. Amir Johnson of the Raptors switched to the Flu Game Air Jordan XII, while Q-Rich rocked one of his Air Jordan XIII PEs. Hakim Warrick went with the ‘Wolf’ Kobe VII, while Paul George opted for an iD version of that model. We’ve got a great recap of NBA Feet for you below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for NBA Feet for the Playoffs! Photos: espn
The race to the Playoffs continues to heat up, as does the collection of sneakers seen on the hardwood over the last two nights. The usual faces appear once again, like Monta Ellis, who brought out the Air Jordan XII ‘Rising Sun’, and two Jordan Brand athletes (CP3, Wade) wearing Player Exclusives of their signature shoes. San Antonio is quietly boasting a trio of sneakerhead ballers, as we noted Kawhi Leonard wearing the Air Jordan XIV ‘Light Graphite’ and Stephen Jackson wearing the Air Jordan III ‘Black Flip’. Other interesting notes; C.J. Miles of the Utah Jazz and Paul George of the Pacers wearing Nike iD colorways of past sigs (C.J. in the KD III and George in the Kobe V), Baron Davis rocking Nike, and Green Week PEs of the Jordan Flight The Power on Ray Allen, Gerald Wallace, and DJ Augustin. A full recap lies ahead, so flip through the gallery for an in-depth look! via espn
Another great weekend of NBA sports was filled out by the collection of NBA games that went down from Friday to Sunday, and mixed in was a ton of great NBA Feet action from some common names that have popped up this season. Monta Ellis brought something new to his repertoire by wearing the Air Jordan XIII ‘Flint’, while Washington’s Jordan Crawford continued his Air Jordan VII agenda by wearing the Air Jordan VII ‘Cardinal’. In Miami, LeBron wore the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Freegums’ while Courtney Lee of the Houston Rockets whipped out the fresh Retro release of the week – the Air Jordan X ‘Chicago’. Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets also introduced the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Low, set for a debut this February.
