Shox and ball.
Shawn Marion showed us a glimpse of the future last night. And that glimpse’s name was Nike Air Shox Hyperballer. Er, Nike Air Hypershox. Um, Nike Shox Air Hyperballer. Actually, we’ll let you know whenever Nike finally settles on a name for it.
Marion debuted the new Shox basketball shoe, set for release later this year, putting up 21 and 10 for the Mavs in a 104-96 loss to the Nuggets. Perhaps Matrix, like Blake Griffin and his Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011, is keen on making a very late season new shoe transition. And with the regular season fading into the playoffs, he’ll have extended time to wear the future now.
Gilbert Arenas kept his kicks rotation spinning, dropping a vintage Gil performance of 25 points – including six 3-pointers – in the Air Jordan 7 “Chambray” from 2006. The Magic beat the Bobcats in overtime, 111-102. Down in Miami, LeBron started in the White/Red LeBron 8 V/2 and finished in the White/Black-Red V/2, tallying 29 points as the Wade-less Heat fell to the Bucks, 90-85. In other action, Kevin Durant unveiled a White/Navy-Yellow edition of the Nike Zoom KD III, Dorell Wright alternated White/Yellow and Yellow/Blue PEAK’s, and Stephen Curry jotted down divine inspiration on his Nike Zoom Hyperfuse.
These kicks and much more, including selections from Blake Griffin, Michael Beasley, Andre Iguodala, Danny Granger and Courtney Lee, ahead in NBA Kicks…
(Jeremy Lin sighting, too!)
