From legitimate rookies (Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma) to special cases (Ben Simmons, Milos Teodosic), the young guns have been making the most out of the extended minutes. Meanwhile, the new faces seem to be adjusting well with their new squads.
Lost in all the hoops-la (get it?) is the on-court fashion that players have been treating the fans with. Forget that ripped jersey a couple of days ago—these fresh sneakers are the real story:
Carmelo Anthony (Jordan Melo M13)
Justin (Nike Kobe 11 Elite Low) and Jrue Holiday (Nike PG1)
Markelle Fultz (Nike LeBron Soldier 10 'Kentucky') and Ben Simmons (Nike Hyperdunk 2017 PE)
Victor Oladipo (Air Jordan 32 PE)
Derrick Rose (adidas D Rose 8) and Dwyane Wade (Li-Ning Way of Wade 6)
Gordon Hayward (Nike Hyperdunk 2017 PE) and Kyrie Irving (Nike Kyrie 3)
Avery Bradley (Air Jordan 31 Low 'Chicago Home')
Damian Lillard (adidas Dame 4)
Chris Paul (Jordan CP3.X)
These crazy battles are over 9000!
