It's time to look back at the past week's action in the NBA and highlight the many Nike Basketball kicks worn on the court. The top story this week is the Zoom Rookie making appearances on a few players feet, including Derrick Williams rocking the "Galaxy" colorway earlier in the week, and Derron Williams sporting the 'Varsity Red' pair on Saturday for the NBA's AIDS Awareness night. As with the past four weeks so far, other Penny Hardaway models continue to get love from various players like Thaddeus Young still playing in the Penny V and another black and white Flight One sighting with Dominique Jones from the Mavericks wearing a pair. Rajon Rondo also continued to wear the "Stealth" Foamposite One, before being suspended for two games after tussling with Kris Humphries. One last story on the retro front this week is Rasheed Wallace with his new home and away Knicks Air Force 1 PE's.
If you're on the lookout for the current high performance Nike Basketball models, there were plenty to choose from this week with the usual blend of Hyperdunks, Hyperfuses, Hyperposites, KD's, Kobes and LeBrons. We get a better look than last week at Rudy Gay's awesome new Air Max Hyperposite PE, as he continued to wear them this week. Vince Carter also has a nice new Hyperposite PE in a navy Hyperfuse and silver Foamposite colorway. Elsewhere, J.J. Hickson and Tyson Chandler continue to wear their Hyperdunk 2012 PE's, and we get a first look at Ben Gordon's Charlotte Bobcats Hyperdunk colorway.
