NBA Jordans Daily: P.J. Tucker Pulls Air Jordan 13 Low “Navy” From The Archives

March 27th, 2015 By


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.

NBA Jordans Daily: Kings Throw Back Their Jerseys & Jordans

March 25th, 2015 By


It was throwback jersey night in Sacramento on Tuesday, as the Kings donned the blue threads they wore as the Rochester Royals from 1945 to 1957. And what goes with a good throwback jersey? Retro Jordans, of course. DeMarcus Cousins took a spin in Air Jordan 12 French Blue, Rudy Gay opted for the blue Air Jordan 2 “Just Don,” and Derrick Williams broke out the Air Jordan 5 Black/Metallic Silvers as the Kings eked out a 107-106 victory over lowly Philadelphia.

NBA Jordans Daily: Marcus Morris Puts Up 11, 11 & Air Jordan 11 Cool Grey

March 22nd, 2015 By


If it weren’t for jersey numbers, we might not be able to tell Marcus and Markieff Morris apart. They even wear the same sneaker many times, focusing on the Nike LeBron line and old school classics like the Foamposite One. On occasion one of the twins will jump into something unfamiliar, as Marcus did on Sunday night with the Dallas Mavericks in town. Air Jordan 11 “Cool Grey” hit the court, a fitting complement to the Suns’ white, orange and grey home uniform. Number 15 added 11 points and 11 rebounds to his team’s 98-92 win, a must-have as the Suns try to catch Oklahoma City for the West’s final playoff spot.

March 9th, 2015 By

Sunday’s NBA action provided yet another center stage for Russell Westbrook to do what he’s been doing best — churning out triple-doubles. The 2015 NBA MVP candidate recorded his fifth triple-double in six games with 30 points, 11 rebounds, and a career high-tying 17 assists to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a key 108-104 win over the visiting Toronto Raptors. Westbrook’s performance also provided another occasion for his Air Jordan XX9 player exclusives to shine, this time in orange gradient style.

Take in the NBA Jordans Daily recap ahead, including Russ’s splashy XX9s, Nate Robinson easing into his new Clippers role off the bench in Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue” and “Gift of Flight,” Joe Johnson pinching hitting for a fellow Jordan Brand athlete with the Melo M11, enough Super.Fly 3s to start a mom and pop, and plenty more.

Drake Gives Air Jordan 12 “OVO” PEs to Amir Johnson

January 13th, 2014 By

Over the weekend the Toronto Raptors linked up with their Global Ambassador (one known as Aubrey Graham) to celebrate the promotional Drake Night and it was rather successful. Not only did the Raptors see a full turnout in attendance, but they also defeated the Brooklyn Nets to keep their place atop the Atlantic Division. Amir Johnson has sported a number of enticing Jordan retros throughout the season, and Drake obviously took notice enough to gift the Center who he also announced as “a close friend of his” during opening intros with the brand new Air Jordan 12 “OVO” PEs in both black and white. The shoes feature a clean monochromatic color scheme of either white or black while premium gold accents hit each sneaker and “OVO” branding hits the sole. Stick with us after the click for a full view at these exclusives and let us know if you’d rock a Jordan Brand x OVO collaboration in the comments.
