No stranger to surprises when it comes to his sneakers, Warriors wing Nick Young has an instant classic tribute in store for Christmas Day’s marquee holiday matchup.
Since joining the Adidas roster of featured NBA players in 2015, Young has often looked to honor former Three Stripes signature athletes like past teammate Kobe Bryant and his close friend Gilbert Arenas. Now, Swaggy P is giving a nod to recently inducted Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady, donning a mismatched pair of the TMac 3 in Warriors hues.
Taking inspiration from McGrady’s vibrant red and blue kicks from the 2004 All-Star game, Young’s edition also features his “Swaggy P” logo along the tongue and insole. Check out his latest player exclusives below in detail, and tune in as the Cavaliers and Warriors face off in a rematch of the 2017 Finals at 3 PM EST on ABC.
