Riding the shoulders of LeBron James and his Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier X, the Cavs’ run to the title would not be denied. Kyrie Irving wore a black/gold colorway of his Nike Kyrie 2 as he hit a pivotal 3-pointer late in the game and simply outplayed league MVP Stephen Curry .
As ‘The Land’ celebrates its first NBA title, Golden State is left wondering what could’ve been. A win away from being considered the best team in NBA history, the Warriors couldn’t close out Cleveland despite being up 3-1. Curry – wearing his Under Armour Curry 2.5 sig in black/gold – flashed the brilliance that made him the league’s best, but didn’t play well enough to overcome LeBron. Draymond Green – in the Nike Zoom HyperRev 2016 – did all he could as he played his best game of the series scoring a game-high 32 points while just missing a triple-double.
As we wrap up our coverage of another year in kicks, we leave you with a gallery featuring a selection of the best sneakers to hit the hardwood from the 2016 NBA playoffs.
