“Jerry Stackhouse brought back his old-school Fila sneakers from his vintage collection. And then turned back the clock on the court in Friday night’s 107-68 victory over the Magic.”—Stefan Bondy, NYDN
How big were the Fila Stacks back in the day? How big is it that the one-time NBA points leader pulled them out and played in them (and played well) this past weekend? Well, for one, the New York Daily News doesn’t even dabble in sneakers…and the above paragraph is how they led off their report of Friday night’s Brooklyn Nets game.
Yeah, seeing the vintage Fila Stack Mid on court was that shocking. And based on the rumblings we hear, prepared to be shocked by some more Fila news in the near future.
Over the course of a 17-year NBA career, Stackhouse, who first debuted the Fila Stacks during his rookie season, has averaged 17.4 ppg, 3.4 apg and 3.2 rpg.
