Last week, the WNBA tipped off its highly anticipated season after a delay as a result of COVID-19. The NBA finally restarted after a trio of scrimmages to get back into mid-season form. All things considered, we’re glad that basketball is back.
Coronavirus is still alive and well (please wear a mask and practice social distance). The cops who murdered Breonna Taylor have yet to be arrested. We still need justice for George Floyd. The world outside of the WNBA and NBA continues to revolve. The players, their platform, and their kicks remind us, especially as a sneaker outlet, the importance of Black lives. Not just yesterday. Not just today. But every day. This isn’t a political issue. This is a human rights issue. Black Lives Matter.
With that being said, we compiled all the heat across the respective bubbles. Take a look at the best Kicks On Court below. Be sure to follow Kicks On Court on Instagram for daily recaps of the best sneakers on the hardwood.
