Isn’t it obvious?
The Atlanta Hawks went to Miami last night and handed the Heat their first loss of the season, 100-92. Joe Johnson led the way with 21 in the Jordan Pure J and Tracy McGrady added 16 off the bench, including two huge 4th quarter 3′s, in the adidas adiZero Ghost. Then the Thunder tipped off in Dallas and got their first loss, 100-87, thanks to Dirk Nowitzki’s 26 in his trusty Nike Hyperdunk 2010 and bench work from Vince Carter’s 14 and his white Nike Air Max Hyperdunk 2011.
But who cares about these losses, except the Heat and Thunder?
NBA Kicks is concerned not about wins and losses and stats. NBA Kicks is about shoes. The cooler and funner the better. And Dominic McGuire wore Concord XI‘s against the Suns. If you’ve kept up with the utter disregard NBA players at large have shown this shoe since its December 23rd drop, you know why each spotting is a big deal. Paul George was the first to brave the Concord void. Then Monta followed. And now Dominic. Even though he did wear them with Monta in that December 28th game. The photogs just didn’t do their kicks duty so unless you caught video highlights and had a keen eye, you were left in the Concord dark.
That’s solved in today’s NBA Kicks. Watch out for Melo in some White/Navy Jordan Melo M8‘s, Toney Douglas refusing to let the adidas TS Supernatural Creator die, Brandon Jennings again choosing the Under Armour Micro G Threat over his Bloodline sig. And more, as always.
