The first round of the NBA playoffs are coming to a close.

While some series were easier than others, these playoffs have been nothing short of entertaining. High-intensity match-ups. All kinds of trash talking on both sides of the ball. Series-winning 3s from 37-feet out. This first round has had it all.

Aside from the play on the court, the Kicks On Court have had their own impact as well. While the best athletes are on the floor battling it out, let’s not forget that these players also have heat on deck.

Take a look at the 10 best from this last week. Be sure to stay up to date with all of your NBA content needs here at Nice Kicks as we have you covered for the entirety of the playoffs.
