The NBA playoffs and the WNBA season have brought the best kicks from the best hoopers in the world. The bubbles have been filled with heat since the NBA restart and WNBA tip-off commenced. Signature shoes have rolled out, player exclusive colorways can be found every game, and some classic gems have also made a cameo on the hardwood.
This week had a little bit of everything. PJ Tucker continues to show why he’s the king. Kawhi Leonard and Donovan Mitchell bring out their latest signature shoe. In addition to that, social justice messages have appeared on this week’s kicks as well.
