Gilbert Arenas broke out the Air Jordan 6 Retro “Olympic” last night against the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder, scoring 6 points in the Magic’s 111-88 victory. No, not the “Midnight Navy” Olympic VI from 2000, the multi-colored edition for 2008’s Beijing games with each color on the shoe representing each of the color rings on the Olympic flag. Gilbert’s already worn the “Oreo” and University Blue Low VI’s. Wonder what other VI colorways he has in reserve.
In Cleveland, Carmelo Anthony put up 27, 8 and 3 but the Knicks fell to the lowly Cavs, 115-109. Melo chose the all-black Jordan Melo M7. Elsewhere, it was a night of traded players making debuts for new teams. Devin Harris suited up for Utah in his trusted adidas SpeedCut XR, Mike Bibby matched Air Jordan 3 Retros with Wizards blue, and Kirk Hinrich brought his Converse SICKS Low with him to Oakland for the Hawks’ game against the Warriors.
All these kicks, including Nick Young’s blue Nike Zoom Kobe VI and Quincy Pondexter’s adidas Crazy 8, ahead in NBA Kicks…
