Paul George has been in thoughts and prayers of his fans, his teammates and even his rivals since suffering a gruesome injury at the Team USA scrimmage. The well-wishes have been heard around the world and they're echoed with optimism in a new ad from Nike Basketball. While the Swoosh had high hopes for PG to lace up the Hyperdunk 2014 and HyperRev 2015 over the course of the next season, they have even higher hopes for his recovery and return. Salute to Nike and can't wait to have you back on the hardwood, Paul.
Just how good is Paul George? This whole season, NBA fans and writers have debated whether or not the Fresno State product belongs in the same sentence as the league's elite. Last night, PG proved his star status, getting hotter than the Heat in a must win game. Dropping 21 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter, George kept the Pacers alive, doing so in a PE pair of the Nike Zoom Crusader.
While George had the biggest game, he wasn't the only one with spectacular sneakers. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen and Lance Stephenson all pulled out PEs, while Norris Cole came through with a pair of rare retros. See who wore what last night in today's installment of Kicks On Court.
