We’re nearing the halfway point of the NBA season with NBA All-Star Weekend around the corner next month and we’ve rounded up the best sneakers worn over the past week from all over the league. Take a look below.
DeMar DeRozan and the Chicago Bulls have been the surprise team of the season with them currently first in the East and DeMar has put up monster numbers and back-to-back game-winning 3s this past week. DeMar is pretty much synonymous with the Nike Kobe line at this point and broke out the Nike Kobe 7 System “What The Kobe” on Monday night against the Orlando Magic.
Fellow Chicago Bull and All-Star Zach Lavine has stepped his game up to another level this season and is currently a sneaker free agent after being with adidas the past few seasons. He’s been rotating different sneakers from brands like New Balance and Nike and broke out the Air Jordan 9 “Cool Grey” against the Hawks.
Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies are also proving everyone wrong with the way they’re playing this season, especially on the defensive end. Ja has been rotating different Nike signature sneakers the season and broke out a PE of the Nike Kobe 6 Protro against the Cleveland Cavaliers in one of the best games of the season so far.
LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets are a must-watch for any hoops fan and the youngest Ball brother broke out a new black and red colorway of his signature PUMA MB.01 earlier this week.
Another sneaker free agent this season is Jaylen Brown and like Zach, he’s been rotating through a number of brands this season. He’s been wearing a fair amount of New Balance sneakers this season and broke out the New Balance TWO WXY “My City” in Dejounte Murray’s San Antonio Spurs colors against the Orlando Magic this past week.
Although the Bulls are at the top of the East, all roads go through Milwaukee as the reigning champs are starting to hit their stride after a slow start to the season. Giannis Antetokoumpo broke out an MVP-inspired colorway of his signature Nike Zoom Freak 3 in a win against the New Orleans Pelicans on New Years Day.
After a down year, looks like the Golden State Warriors are back in form as the best team in the league with Stephen Curry playing at an MVP level. Steph broke out his signature Under Armour Curry Flow 9 in black and yellow with Draymond Green wearing the Converse G4.
Donovan Mitchell and the Utah Jazz are set to challenge the Warriors to come out of the West and Spida broke out the Mike Wazowski x adidas D.O.N. Issue #3 which takes his signature sneaker with the 3 Stripes and collaborated with Monsters Inc. for the movie’s 20th anniversary.
Although they’ve been struggling as of late, you can’t count out the Los Angeles Lakers. Malik Monk is starting to hit his stride and low key has one of the best Nike Kobe Protro PE collections in the league as he broke out a new PE of the Nike Kobe 6 Protro against the Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers. Dame wore his signature adidas Dame 8 “Respect My Name” colorway.
And Carmelo Anthony is still in the holiday spirit as he’s been wearing his Christmas PE of the Air Jordan 36 as of late, featuring Santa Claus on the heel pulltab with green accenting throughout the tonal red sneaker.
