Welcome to Nightly Pro Notables: a collection of the hottest sneakers and biggest moments of the night on September 10, 2020.
On this night, we saw the Lakers take a 3-1 series lead on the Houston Rockets on the back of another big Anthony Davis performance. Additionally, we saw sneaker moments from the likes of PJ Tucker and even rookie Talen Horton-Tucker (no relation.) The recently leaked Air Jordan XXXV also graced the hardwood for the first time in both the NBA and WNBA bubble games. Check below for all of these highlights and kicks on a light day of Disney World hoops.
A.D. Stands for Always Dominating
Anthony Davis had a tougher time with the likes of P.J. Tucker early in the Western Conference Semifinals, but was in his element tonight. A.D.’s considerable length helped grab multiple offensive boards, while finishing above shorter Rockets defenders.
The Brow dropped 29 points in the budget-friendly, black and white Nike Mamba Fury. You can find this colorway at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Caruso Ices the Game
The Lakers had a 23 point lead in the 4th, but had to sweat it out in the clutch. Luckily for them, LeBron found Alex Caruso in the corner for a three to finish off the comeback Rockets.
LeBron Hits the Finisher
With the game in hand thanks to Caruso, LeBron James punctuated the win with a alley-oop slam off the backboard. You know, normal stuff for a 17-year vet.
A Shock Drop Debut
Both Jeff Green and Kia Nurse debuted new Air Jordan XXXV sneaker on-court today. Not much is known about the 35th signature Jordan sneaker, but it does appear to feature a heel homage to the Air Jordan 5. The eye-catching and supportive eclipse-plate carries over from the AJ34 as well.
Stay tuned to What Pros Wear for further info on the Air Jordan 35.
P.J. Thinks Pink
P.J. Tucker isn’t just showing off his own Kobe 5s, he’s rocking multiple PE colorways including this black, pink, and white Kobe 5 Protro.
A Sneaker Free Agent Update for Rajon
Rajon Rondo became a sneaker free agent recently after years with Anta. The Lakers guard had been rocking classic Nike styles but switched it up today with some Puma. No word on if Rondo has signed, or if teammate Kyle Kuzma hooked it up with a pair of J. Cole’s signature shoe.
