It was a Jordan Brand affair in Chicago on Thursday night, as Jimmy Butler went toe-to-toe with Kawhi Leonard. Both players wore PE versions of the Air Jordan XXXI. Despite Leonard having the better game, it was Butler and the Bulls coming out with the 95-91 win to end the Spurs’ unblemished road winning streak.
Up north in Toronto, a trio of grail-worthy Kobes were on display as DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine battled it out. DeRozan would rock two pairs from the coveted Nike Kobe FTB collection as he wore both the Zoom Kobe 1 and the Zoom Kobe 7. Not to be outdone, LaVine went with one his favorites on the season, the Nike Zoom Kobe 2 Prelude. In the same, starting point guards Ricky Rubio and Kyle Lowry matched up in adidas with Rubio wearing the Crazy Explosive and Lowry the Crazylight Boost Low 2016.
