Yesterday was the annual media day for all NBA teams. That means the entire organization gets together with their respective teams, hangout, ask questions, take selfies, team portraits, voice overs, and all the other weird things players do which they’ll probably look back on and think, “what the f*ck was I doing?”
Media day is also the time when fans and the media has access to see particular players donning new threads (I won’t get over seeing KD in a GSW uniform until midway through the season), kicks, or just an overall new look. But the kicks is where its at really, or at least that we care about. Some takeaways from media day included John Wall opting for a pair of hyperdunks, which could mean that Wall signed with the swoosh family. There’s a new D Lillard 2 colorway, Zach Lavine honored his big homie KG by rocking the Air Garnett III’s, and last but not least Mike Conley made the switch from UA to the Jumpman familia, but who wouldn’t just to hoop in the AJXXXI’s (I’ve heard nothing but great things about those, still need a pair…). Anyways enough of my ramblings and check out the images below to see everything I just talked about.
