Second time did the trick.
Chris Paul has cycled through three Jordan CP3.V colorways in the Clips’ first four games this season: Christmas Day Red/Green for a road win over the Warriors, Red/Grey for a loss in San Antonio, and Blue/White for a home loss to D. Rose’s Bulls and a home win last night against the Blazers.
So, a 2-2 record. Of course we’re assuming that shoe colorways have any bearing at all on the win/loss column. And they may. How many times has a player switched up colorways or even models for a fresh start on court? Like oil to an engine, sneakers are the lifeblood of a basketball player. It’s how they get around. If that lifeblood gets tainted, it breaks the engine down. The lesson here is to keep the right oil on your feet. You get the idea.
So CP3 debuted the Blue/White colorway last Friday and got beat. Right oil? He had to be sure. So out they came for the matchup with the Blazers. A 93-88 success. Just goes to show that sometimes engine kinks have to be worked out. That and you have to play better.
CP3 running smoothly, plus Rajon Rondo doing a triple double in the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011, Derek Fisher with some more Lakers flavored adidas adiZero Crazy Light Low PE’s in the Nuggets’ get-back win, Jarrett Jack giving the Nike Zoom KD IV “Blackout” a try and Derrick Williams doing the Under Armour Micro G Supersonic Low proud, in today’s batch of NBA Kicks…
