The NBA’s third annual Green Week began Sunday, a league partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Council to raise funds for and awareness of environmental preservation. And although Denver players Kenyon Martin, Nenê, Raymond Felton and Ty Lawson did their awareness-spreading via green adidas adiPure’s and Nike Air Foamposite Pro’s, they didn’t tread lightly in L.A. The Nuggets got 22 points from Danilo Gallinari, 18 from Martin, and 16 from Felton to pollute the Lakers’ 9-game win streak with a 95-90 victory. A single tear ran down Jack Nicholson’s face.
The other teams playing Sunday didn’t show any G.W. solidarity with their feet but they did manage to contribute a few choice kicks. Ray Allen and Gerald Wallace went with the “Silver Anniversary” Air Jordan 11 and 9, respectively, LeBron gave his Black/Red-Orange LeBron 8 V/2 another spin, Toronto’s Johnson Boys wore Cool Grey Jordan 11’s, Rondo helped chew up the Pistons in White/Gum BB 360 Low’s, and Leandro Barbosa pretended to be D-Rose again by wearing the adidas adiZero Rose 1.5.
