  1. I miss the SHIMMY. What happened ? All-Star player and has won a championship. On top of the world one minute then all of a sudden he’s filing for bankruptcy and getting robbed. How do you get bounced from the Timberwolves ? They need all the help they can get.

    Probably the only nba player i ever hated. Reminds me of the only college player i ever hated khalid al amin (uconn). Both fat and overrated. Antwan wants em retroed cuz he is broke as a joke

    I had a pair of those and they’re one of the best I’ve ever played indoors in. I missed the black & whites when they retroed 5 years ago. Those other colors were horrible.

      Had these…I think they are very comparable to the lightness of the Kobe’s and Hyperdunks of today with better ankle cushioning. Been looking for this shoe since 98
