Monday marked the first day of February and to kick off Black History Month, many players took the floor wearing special-edition sneakers. Some of the players repping the adidas “733” Jesse Owens collection were Kenneth Faried in the D Lillard 2, Danilo Gallinari in the adidas J Wall 2, and Derrick Rose in his signature D Rose 6.
Players wearing the “BHM” collection from Nike and Jordan Brand included Thaddeus Young in the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier IX, DeMar DeRozan and Gordon Hayward in the Nike Kobe XI Elite, and Victor Oladipo and Monta Ellis both sporting the Jordan Super.Fly 4.
