Sneaker Watch // adidas Basketball Recap - Week 7

words // Brandon Richard

In terms of sneakers, are the Atlanta Hawks adidas Basketball's best NBA representatives? Portland and Chicago may have arguments, but the Hawks have stolen the show over the last few weeks. With three out of five starters and reserve Devin Harris under the brand, stripes often dominate the Phillips Arena court. Newcomer Jeff Teague has helped turn things up by breaking out pairs from Derrick Rose's signature line. 

It also doesn't hurt that the Hawks are playing well above expectations this season, currently holding on to the Eastern Conference's third best record. With J-Smoove's name frequently appearing in trade talks, a move from Atlanta would not only mean a significant change for the Hawks, but also for adidas Basketball and one of their marquee athletes.

We were all excited to see Ricky Rubio make his anticipated return to the Minnesota Timberwolves over the weekend, making his season debut with an 8-point, 9-assist, 4-rebound, 3-steal outing against the Dallas Mavericks. Being eased back into the rotation as a reverse, Rubio is currently lacing up the adizero Crazy Light 2 in Wolves-inspired colorways. Will his presence make Minnesota a factor in the postseason?

On Sunday night, rookie Damian Lillard added an early signature moment to his young career by drilling a game-winning three-pointer against Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Hornets. Continuing his impressive rookie campaign in the "Light Scarlet" Rose 773, Lillard has steadily sat atop NBA.com's Rookie Ladder for the entire season. Can Dame follow in Rose's footsteps by bringing the Rookie of the Year Award back to Team adidas?

A little love also has to be shown to Tim Duncan, who continues to play remarkable basketball at the age of 36. Though the Spurs lost to the Nuggets on Tuesday, the 16-year veteran recorded a stat line of 31 points, 18 rebounds, 6 assists, 5 blocks and 2 steals. At this point, Timmy is just padding an already complete Hall of Fame resume and pushing himself up the list of the greatest to ever play the game.
