Ricky Rubio debuted a cancer awareness custom that paid homage to his mother and former coach Flip Saunders, while teammate Rudy Gobert had a custom of his own, honoring one of his favorite video games. Kyle Kuzma brought out an early Kobe Bryant model and Lonzo Ball wore a Lakers-colored Big Baller Brand sneaker.
D’Angelo Russell wore the latest PG2 silhouette that Nike-sponsored teams in the NCAA Tournament have been wearing during March and Tobias Harris’ kicks paid homage to his Alma Mater and one of the Clippers’ alternate uniforms.
