Kicks On Court: Derrick Williams and Eric Bledsoe Bring Out Classic LeBrons

Classic LeBrons continue to appear on court as the 2013-2014 NBA season unfolds. Fresh off of Nick Young's 40-point performance in the "Wheat" Nike Air Zoom Generation, we see two other vintage LeBrons on the hardwood during the NBA's 13-game schedule last night. Sacramento Kings forward Derrick Williams surprisingly laced up the white, navy and gold Nike Zoom LeBron IV, a shoe that released in 2006. Although we've recently seen King James' fourth signature shoe on court thanks to Michael Beasley, this particular colorway hasn't been seen since LeBron himself wore it. Earlier in the night, we spotted Suns guard Eric Bledsoe facing his former team in the original colorway of the Nike Zoom LeBron III. Check out these kicks on court, plus Nick Young's new Kobes, LeBron's exclusive Soldiers, John Wall's impressive Crazyquick PE and Courtney Lee's latest LeBron iD, below.

Kicks On Court: Derrick Williams Breaks Out “MLK” Kobe IV

Vintage Kobes have been one of the major storylines of the young season so far, especially with Nick Young making his presence felt with the Prelude Pack. However, last year's Kicks On Court Champion, Derrick Williams, has quietly brought out a couple of the rarest Kobes we've ever seen on court. Following his wear of the "Aston Martin" Nike Zoom Kobe V earlier this season, Williams surprisingly laced up the "MLK" version of the Nike Zoom Kobe IV in last night's win against the Portland Trail Blazers. The "MLK" Kobe IV was a Quickstrike release in 2009 and is one of the most limited colorways of Bryant's fourth signature shoe. If you recall, Kobe Bryant himself debuted this sneaker, which features Gold reptile print and a gradient effect on the toe box, on MLK Day in 2009.

Kicks On Court: Derrick Williams Records Career High in “Flint Grey” Air Jordan 7

"The team change has my kicks on court all messed up, but I'm back now." - Derrick Williams Middle-of-the-season player transactions can be a hindrance in terms of kicks on court, but it seems as if the recent trade to Sacramento has revived Derrick Williams. Last year's Kicks On Court Champion began this season in a couple of gems here and there but mostly general released product. However, much of it went unnoticed due to playing time. Williams will see much more court time in his new role with the Kings, so we should definitely be seeing more creativity in regards to his kicks on court. In last night's 31 point performance against the Mavericks, Williams wore the "Flint Grey" Air Jordan 7, a shoe that released in the spring of 2006. These particular 7s, which feature multiple Varsity Purple hints, proved to be a perfect fit with the Kings' Home uniforms. View these kicks on court, plus Antawn Jamison's Crazy 8s, below.
