The Starting 5 of Each Major Footwear Brand in the NBA Today

Aug 12, 2015 | George Kiel III |



Every NBA roster is different.

Each team has its leaders, role players, defensive specialist, 6th man and more. But what about footwear brand rosters? Which brand has the best roster? We took the time to create our own starting 5 – and 6th man – for each major footwear brand in the NBA today. Check it out, and rank the starting 5 of each brand.

Nike Basketball’s Starting 5

PG – Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers

SG – Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers

SF – Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

PF – LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers

C – Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans

6th Man – Paul George, Indiana Pacers

Our Nike Basketball starting 5 is set up like an All-Star team or Olympic team. All but one player in the starting 5 – Anthony Davis – has their own signature shoe, although we think that will change very soon. There are even rumors regarding our 6th man, Paul George, getting a signature shoe at some point as well.
