While we know Suns swingman P.J. Tucker keeps a mean sneaker collection at the ready, including a range of Nike Basketball and vintage Air Jordan, you can never pin his sneaker tastes down. He’s in Kobe 9 one night, Foamposite One the next. In his latest game he flipped a truly rare sneaker on us – the Air Jordan 13 Low “Navy” from 1998. Seeing the shoes again in any setting is a brow-raiser but anyone playing in them with 17 years of patina is a bona fide miracle. Play in them he did, but not very well, adding only three points on 1-11 shooting as the Kings eased past the Suns 108-99. Big loss for Phoenix, a team on the rise just year ago and now finding themselves fading from the NBA Western Conference playoff picture three games back of the number eight seed.
