Sneaker Watch // adidas Basketball Weekly Recap - Opening Week

words // Brandon Richard

Next up in our brand-by-brand NBA Sneaker Watch is adidas, fresh off of a summer in which they revamped the roster with a few new faces.

With D-Rose rehabbing and Dwight's Lakers reeling, the story for adi Hoops in the early stages of the season has been rookie Damian Lillard's "old man" game and future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan's "young man" game. Lillard, currently wearing the "Light Scarlet" Rose 773, became the first player since Oscar Robertson to record at least 20 points and 7 assists in each of his first three NBA games. Duncan led the Spurs to their first ever 4-0 start in PE colorways of the Flight Path.

Speaking of Dwight, he's been switching between his adiPower Howard 3 and adizero Howard Light signature models. In the Lakers lone win of the season against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday, Howard laced up the adiPower Howard 3 in a Lakers White/Purple colorway. If he's feeling superstitious, he may want to stick with those.

Otherwise, stripe guys mostly hit the court in team-specific make-ups of the adizero Crazy Light 2, Crazy Shadow and adizero Ghost 2. J-Smoove's Ghost 2 PEs were instant eye-catchers, particularly the Navy/Grey/Red pair he wore in last night's Hawks win over the Indiana Pacers.

Separating himself from the pack this week was Phoenix Suns forward Wesley Johnson, who went to work in adidas' Top Ten 2000 retro. This shouldn't be a surprise, as Wesley has spent a lot of time in the Crazy 8 throughout his first two seasons. Hopefully we'll see a lot more "Feet You Wear" goodness on the court this season.

Enjoy a comprehensive look at the league's 3-Stripe athletes and what they're wearing to start the season in today's adidas Basketball Recap.
