The Jazz are 11 games into an 82 game season. So, even with a 5-6 record, it’s too early to truly panic. At the same time, Tuesday’s 104-97 home loss to the Philadelphia 76ers is the latest example of a trend that should give the Jazz cause for angst. “Right now, we’re too much in our own heads,” Jazz forward Thabo Sefolosha said. “We’re too worried about not making shots and it’s affecting our defense.”
Not Thabo Sefolosha, though. He’s consistent. For the past couple years, the 33-year-old has exclusively balled in one shoe: The Nike Air Max 90. Yes, one of the Swoosh’s most iconic running shoes designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield is being used by the Jazz forward. “People ask me all the time, ‘How do I play in them?’ I just lace them up and run,” Sefolosha explained while grinning.
He is the only active NBA player sporting that particular model, according to NBA Shoes DB. “I just play in what’s comfortable, to be honest,” Sefolosha said. “That was the main thing for me, just being comfortable. “I think they have great grip for somebody like me that kind of slides a lot and needs to be quick on the court,” he added. “That was my thought process and after that I just try to put some flavor on that and add some color.”
