NIGHTLY PRO NOTABLES: Lakers Become Lob City in Game 1 Shellacking of Nuggets – September 18, 2020

Welcome to Nightly Pro Notables: a collection of the hottest sneakers and biggest moments of the night on September 18, 2020.

The 2020 NBA Playoffs has featured many nail-biters throughout, and this Lakers vs. Nuggets game… was not that. Los Angeles ran Denver out of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex gym, blowing out the Nugs after a close 1st quarter. Check below for plenty of Kobes on the Lake Show side, as well as endless lobs from the Showtime Squad.


The Brow Unfurls Huge Blowout Win

Anthony Davis made sure the Lakers didn’t lose another game 1 with a masterful performance against the Denver Nuggets. The Brow kept defenders on their toes all game, scoring from all parts of the court with his quick face-up game. As you can see later on, he clobbered a handful of lob dunks as well.

The damage: a double-double with 37 points and 10 rebounds.

Davis wore a blue paneled “Chaos” PE colorway of the Nike Kobe 5 Protro. This isn’t available at this time, but you can find other colors at StockX, GOAT, and Flight Club.

Playoff Rondo Helps Dunk Nuggets

The legend of Playoff Rajon Rondo continues with another extraordinary passing game. Rondo even leveled up his shooting, making difficult shots like this one from behind the backboard:

Of course, Rajon is known for throwing his dime passes with this bounce pass impressing J.R. Smith:

Rondo also helped resurrect the remnants of the Clippers Lob City days with a flurry of alley-oop passes like this one to Dwight Howard:

We also saw a very loud lob dunk from Rajon to Anthony Davis:

The Lakers sneaker free agent rocked the Puma RS-Dreamer for all of these highlights, to match his purple and gold jersey. You can find Rondo’s “Purple Heart” Pumas at StockX and GOAT.

Caruso Joins in on the Fun

Not to be outdone, the Lakers other Point Guard Alex Caruso threw this wild alley-oop to LeBron James for the hanging two-handed dunk.

The Nike Kobe 5 Protro “Lakers/ 5x Champs” that Caruso rocked in game 1 can be found at StockX and GOAT.

James rocked a clean baseball themed Nike LeBron 7, with Dodger blue and red. Check out that red baseball stitching as well. This colorway isn’t available, but you can find other LeBron 7s at StockX, Flight Cluband Stadium Goods.

Another One to Dwight

Surprise, surprise; another lob dunk highlight with James the dime-thrower. Dwight Howard put a little extra on his two-handed dunk, growling in the process.

Dwight also wore the Nike Kobe 5 Protro “Lakers/ 5x Champs” that can be found at StockX and GOAT.


Pregame Bron Debuts New Shoe

King James made the most of his tunnel fit tonight, debuting the Nike LeBron 18 “Reflections” off the court. To read more on the latest LeBron signature, you can read HERE.

In past seasons, Paul Millsap would rock inline basic Nike Basketball sneakers that you couldn’t name off the top of your head. This season saw a major step up though with multiple Kobe colorways that would make PJ Tucker jealous.

Millsap wore a dark blue and yellow Kobe 5 Protro this game to match those Nuggets uniforms. This colorway isn’t available but you can find other colors at StockX, GOAT, and Flight Club.
