Let’s hope we don’t see our favorite Knick and rapper in the league Iman Shumpert on the follow-up to ESPN’s 30 for 30 “Broke” playing ball with Antoine Walker.   The man uses Iphones as basketballs and paid $6k for a pair of sneakers.  I can buy 100 Shaq shoes at payless, 100 starbury’s from Amazon and 100 And1 shoes at Wal-Mart for those kicks.

Check out this interview with Iman by Sneaker Watch where he justifies spending $6k on some shoes and talks about the price hike on Derrick Rose’s new shoe.  Also shout out to Iman for always supporting us and please don’t ever let us hear about you playing in the D-League at near 40 while living off fast food.

If you have expensive taste in sneakers I have a few recommendations courtesy of Bleacher Report.

Nike Zoom LeBron VI Big Apple NYC: $1,650

Air Jordan Golden Moment Olympic: $2k
