Kicks On Court: Holiday Special - December 26th, 2008

For many years now, Christmas Day has always brought us some memorable basketball games. Similar to Thanksgiving and football, we can always count on the NBA to entertain us during the holidays. If you watched yesterday’s NBA coverage, you saw some great games, namely the Boston Vs LA match; however, our Kicks On Court spotted some of your favorite basketball players sporting special holiday season PEs including LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.

For example, LeBron James sported the 100th colorway (not really) of his latest sneaker called the Nike Zoom LeBron 6 “Chalk”. We also spotted Kobe Bryant hooping in a Christmas edition of the Nike Zoom Kobe 4, yet, he was not the only person in the Staples Center sporting this sneaker. Along with Trevor Ariza, many of the Lakers courtside seats’ fans also had purple colorways of the Nike Zoom Kobe 4.

Click the jump to also see Kevin Garnett’s UNDR CRWN Adidas TS Commander, plus other sneakers worn by Ray Allen, Dwight Howard, Amare Stoudemire, Tim Duncan, and others.

  1. IM NOT A ADIDAS MAN BUT I’D CHOOSE THOSE GUCCI KEVIN GARNETTE KIX OVER ANY OF THEM AND RAY ALLENS 2.5 LOOK BETTER THAN THE REST OF THE 2.5S IVE SEEN

  2. Da Ray Allen 2.5′s look sick. I was like “what is he wearin’” when I watched da game. Was Rondo playin’ wit his shoes untied da whole game, or was that pre-game? Oh, KG’s shoes look pretty good also.

  3. george lopez and his fam was wearing the Nike Zoom Kobe 4, i was like how cheezy ! lol sugar ray’s j2.5 are sick and DO-wight Howard’s shoes are disgusting . lol

    lakers !

  4. damn i thought yall would have a pic of the cp3IIs =[ i was like man cant wait to see it on kicks on the court but nooooo way ta let me down guyzz T.T lol

  5. #21; i agree but shaqs skills are dropping like bush’s approval rating; i seen him miss a dunk in a game and i was like dizamn!

  6. from what u see looks like ray gun only put red shoes laces on his j 2.5′s… thats lame………….just like the 2.5′s

  7. HEY NICEKICKS……is it true that LeBron made the Wizards play in their white uniforms, so that the Cavs can play in their navy uniforms, just so that LBJ’s kicks would match?

    Don’t know if this rumor is true.

  8. yes #38 that is true. the cavs jerseys also didnt have the snowflake around the NBA logo because they changed the jerseys…i know its ridiculous

  9. Kevin Garnett’s Adidas TS Commander actually don’t look that bad. I guess its because I’m a fan of the colorway…but when a shoe is ugly, I do tell it like it is.

  10. the TEAM KICKS award goes to BOSTON! hahaha all of their kicks feeling the holiday season. second is THE CAVS, lebrons new colorway and the matching hyperdunks on his teammates. glen davis’ and lamar odom’s dunks were nice too.

  11. explain why derek fisher and lamar odom’s kicks don’t match thier jersey’s at all? those shoes should be on suns players, they stood out on tv, nike must be getting color blind

  12. so how many sprained ankles, and ankle injury are going to happen this year due to Kobe new kicks, and all these other low top basketball playing sneakers? NO ANKLE SUPPORT NIKE!!

  13. Rondo need to get it together and tie his laces, that’s y his kicks keep flyin off when he’s playin. not a good look brah

  14. KG’s Gucci inspired shoes were cool. The KBIV’s were hot as hell. Dont 4get the red BlueChip PE’s of Brandon Roy. Those were hot as hell playa.

  15. it would have been nice to show some more of the foamposite lites and the jordan XX’s that michael finley was wearing.. the XX’s looked especially nice on court

  16. Rajon was rockin blue chips not BB2. an that was George Lopez and family with the matchin Kobe’s (so cheezy)

  17. Howard’s Supermans are straight FIRE!!!
    All brands did a great job on the X-mas/Special editions, personal favorites are the, Undrcrwn Commanders, X-mas Commanders/Creators, Timmy D’s Bounce Commanders, and the Kobe IV’s though.
