At least the kicks look good.
When your team is 0-7 and you need a break in the clouds, you try to do things differently to get the first win. Change your pre-game meal, take four showers, and especially change up your sneaker selection.
While John Wall’s game day routine may or may not have changed going into last night’s game against the T-Wolves, we do know he decided to try out a pair of navy blue Reebok Wall Season 2: ZigEncore‘s. He was good for 10, 5, 6 and 2 but the Wiz lost their 8th straight, 93-72, to slump to 0-8 overall. Some of the blame for that loss can be placed on Ricky Rubio’s shoulders, who came off the Minnesota bench in his Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011‘s for 13 points, 6 boards, 14 assists and a block. Cheer up though, JW. It’s not your shoes. Just try changing up your teammates next time.
