After taking a brief break to celebrate the holiday we are back with another daily recap in which we pose the question; is it the shoes? The answer is never fact and always for you to decide. So, after you have a look at today’s set of photos let us know what you think of the shoes highlighted as well as any of the games played on Saturday.
The Miami Heat hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, 11/24/12, as Miami chased their 10th win of the season. En route to their 110-108 victory Miami’s Dwyane Wade dropped 18 pts – 7 rbs – 4 ast while wearing a nice white/black Li-Ning Way Of Wade PE.
Any #IITS entry wouldn’t be complete with out featuring a favorite Nike model of mine; the Nike Air Max Hyperposite. Chris Bosh has been wearing the Nike Air Max Hyperposite all season and Saturday was no different as he laced up another white/black-red player exclusive. Bosh, like Wade, helped contribute to the Heat’s victory over the Cavaliers by adding 23 pts – 7 rbs – 1 ast of his own.
With the launch of the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII on the way many have expected to see Kobe wearing it on the court by now but those that pay attention know that Kobe usually debuts his newest signature shoe on Christmas day. With that being said, you can expect to see Kobe in the Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon III or player exclusive Nike Zoom Kobe VIIs much like the one seen above. As Kobe laced up this grey/white-purple PE he dropped 19 pts – 3 rbs – 5 ast, helping the Lakers beat the Mavericks 115-89.
Now Antawn Jamison might not be the most watched NBA player in the sneaker world but today we want to show him some love for dropping a double-double in the first half of the Lakers vs. Mavericks game Saturday. Jamison finished the game with 19 pts – 15 rbs – 0 ast while donning a player exclusive colorway of the adidas adiZero Ghost 2.0.
The Sacramento Kings DeMarcus Cousins is known for wearing various Nike Basketball and Jordan Brand models as of late and Saturday was no different as he laced up a grey/white Nike Air Zoom Flight V iD. While wearing the Flight V iD, Cousins put up 14 pts – 9 rbs – 3 ast in the Kings’ 108-97 victory over the Utah Jazz.
As we mentioned above the Miami Heat beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-108 on Saturday. During the Cavaliers loss, rookie guard Dion Waiters wore a Cavs inspired Nike Zoom Kobe VII iD and contributed 16 pts – 1 rbs – 2 ast to the Cavaliers effort.
For the second time in a week we spotlight Monta Ellis and the “Midwest” Air Jordan 19. This time around the Milwaukee Bucks took on the Chicago Bulls and suffered a loss with the final score being 93-86. In their 5th loss of the season Ellis recored 17 pts – 6 rbs – 2 ast.
