Oklahoma City’s season is over, and with it any chance we see more Air Jordan XX9s at least until November. (Or until Game 1 of the Finals where Jordan Brand athletes Kawhi Leonard and Ray Allen fill the void with a nifty Spurs and Heat colorways, hopefully. Their XX8 SEs are tired and want to go fishing already.)
Russell Westbrook, the man who debuted Air Jordan XX9 on-court in late April, was valiant in 112-107 overtime defeat, putting up 34 points, seven boards, eight assists and six steals in his white and blue elephant-printed AJ29. Kevin Durant put up an equally impressive outing in his standard Nike KD VI — 31 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks.
Part of the Thunder’s trouble keeping the West Finals alive was the fact that they received only five points from their entire bench entirely from NBA-head-coach-in-waiting Derek Fisher. Fish was also the guy who logged the most minutes in the Nike KD VI Elite this postseason, while his teammate and the shoe’s namesake chose to stand pat with his regular KD VI model.
In any case, here’s the best of Spurs-Thunder Game 6 kicks. Should hold you over until Thursday night — Game 1, Heat-Spurs, 9pm EST on ABC.
