The last full week of regular season NBA basketball is coming to an end. Whether your team has clenched a spot or your star player is sitting out for the remainder of the season, we can all find solace in the fact that the shoes are still coming in hot.
We saw a lot of must-have Kobes as Mamba Day approaches next weekend. Russ paid tribute to Pokemon. DeMar DeRozan brought out another fire Kobe 4 Protro. All in all, a solid week all around.
