Now that the Lakers have at last lost their first game, I think it’s safe to say that the season has more or less, officially begun and perhaps Andrew Bynum cannot return any sooner. Last night was quite a night for the NBA as more than a handful its top premiere players all went head-to-head. Kobe became the youngest player ever to reach the 26,000-point milestone, but it was his good friend Carmelo Anthony, whose 32-point performance, arguably the best outing he’s had against the Lake Show in quite some time, that greatly helped notch the win for the Nuggets. On the other side of the country, the Boston Celtics headed down to South Beach and completely ravaged the Miami Heat despite 32 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists from LeBron James.
Both Melo and LeBron had new colorways of their signature kicks added to their respective collections this week and we took a closer look.
Carmelo Anthony had the Jordan Melo M7 ‘Jade’ colorway drop in the U.S. exclusively through Nike’s online store. They were rumored to be an Asia release only, but lucky for us, they’ve been released here stateside. However, if you want to cop a pair, you have to act quick.
You can always leave it up to LeBron to rock special colorways of his kicks when certain occasions call for it as was the case last night when he debuted the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII ‘Veterans Day’. These are dropping very soon so check the post for the info!
The Air Jordan 2010 ‘Silver Anniversary’ model that Dwyane Wade wore during last season’s NBA All-Star game were released on very limited terms this week and they vanished as fast as they came, but you’ll be able to find a link to online sellers through the post so check it out!
For fans of bright and flashy kicks, you’ve gotta take a look at the Air Jordan II Retro ‘Candy Pack’. Coming in varsity red, del sol yellow, or classic green (probably not so much this one for Lakers Nation), these colorways will definitely catch many glances on the street or wherever they trek to.
