John Wall a sneaker free agent

Wall will be an unrestricted sneaker free agent this summer, after the season concludes. The adidas “match clause” will have expired, and Wall will be free to sign with any brand of his liking. Unsurprisingly, Wall has been spotted literally never in adidas off-court this fall, even wearing Retro Jordans from time to time, and practicing in Kobe Xs. Tonight, for the first time, he wore the Nike Kobe X on court in a game, apparently citing “footwear issues” with his JWall 2 signature shoe. “My main focus is just play basketball,” Wall said when asked by the Washington Post after shoot-around earlier this month. “I let my agents and marketing team and them negotiate and talk.”

Paul George is well aware that Monday is it. It’s the last time that he will ever go against five-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant — a player he idolized while growing up in nearby Palmdale, California — in a competitive game. (The two are each starters in the 65th annual NBA All-Star game slated for Sunday, Feb. 14.) For George, he’s thinking about one-upping the sure-thing Hall of Famer. “Honestly, try to go for 82 [points],” he said with a big grin. (Kobe’s 81-point game was 10 years ago.)

Anthony’s surgically repaired left knee has already cost him seven games this season while robbing him of a quick first step and any explosiveness at the rim. The Knicks have copped to giving Anthony one MRI but according to a team source, Anthony has had two MRIs in the past three weeks so the concern over his long-term health is very real. “Today, it wasn’t that sore,” Anthony said. “I think the couple of days off helped.”
