The Miami Heat’s Hassan Whiteside made his return to the hardwood after missing nine games with a custom Air Jordan XI that featured one of his favorite villains. In Oakland, Kevin Durant came back, too, with one of his popular sneaker colorways but only lasted a half due to an ejection.
Russell Westbrook wore his signature Why Not Zer0.1 sneaker that complemented the Thunder’s away uniforms and Giannis Antetokounmpo wore a cream-colored Kobe A.D. Mid. Thaddeus Young and Stanley Johnson wore two special Nike collabs and John Wall debuted an adidas player-exclusive during pregame shootaround. And in Indiana, Lance Stephenson brought out a classic Air Jordan III.
Check out some of yesterday’s best kicks from around the league.
