The Celtics/Lakers Rivalry Comes to Life on Custom Air Jordan 3

Jul 2, 2019 | Luis Torres |



The Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics are two of the most storied franchises in not only the NBA but throughout all of sports. Legends. Superstars. Dynasties. Championships. All of which continue to be a part of these two historic teams.

The Goliaths from the East and West have met a record-setting 12 times in the NBA Finals with the Boston Celtics having the upper-hand with more chips and thus more dip. The rivalry has come back to life with both teams rebuilding their rosters with superstars and emerging stars.

Customizer Malcolm Garret paid homage to the rich history with this custom Air Jordan 3 “Rivalry” as the beauty is found in the details. The left pair is all about the C’s with the green Jumpman on the tongue and heel along with a strike of green that sits below the elephant print that made the AJ3 so historic and ahead of its time.

The right pair is for the City of Angels as the purple and gold decorates the shoe. Both shoes feature a layer of gold that represents the rich championship history between these two teams.

Take a look at the pics below, and be sure to follow the artists behind the pair here. What are your thoughts? Would you like to see Jordan Brand drop a “Rivalry” colorway or pack? Let us know on social media.
