Three NBA Sneakerheads to Watch

On and off the court, these athletes are bringing the heat!

Ever since the National Basketball Association changed the policy on sneaker style restrictions, players started taking full advantage of the newfound leniency. At this point, some athletes purposely wear themed shoes that don’t match their team jerseys simply because they can now. It’s no longer about matching your sneakers with your team jerseys anymore. It is about the heat you have on your feet. These 3 kick aficionados not only show out on the court but also do off the court.

PJ Tucker

This guy has a universal appreciation for fashion trends across the globe. One day, he may have on a biker outfit fit for a Harley-Davidson ride. Next day he is rocking a Miami Vice suit with the taco meat out on display. PJ is the type who has to have options. Speaking of options, PJ usually brings 2 pairs of shoes to play in per game. He is the real deal, period.

Lance Stephenson

His memorable taunts made him famous, but his sneaker rotation is what keeps me in tune. Lance is very interactive online where he wants sneaker advice from his fans. On IG, Lance has given his fans a poll to decide what he should wear for a home game. Unpredictable is what you will enjoy following this baller.

Nick Young

I consider him to be a Young OG when it comes to dressing on and off of the court. Urban elegance is the best way I can describe his fashion sense. His dedication to the outfit is unparalleled in the league. Nick is the first player I know to ball in a pair of Yeezy’s (not fit for basketball performance) during a game. Swaggy P is true to the culture and is a great profile to keep in recent searches.
