After statistically recording the worst season of his career in his first season with the Spurs, swingman Richard Jefferson has returned this season with a hot hand. The 9-year pro is averaging 19 points on a team-high 59% shooting, including 53% from three-point range. Never a team to be forgotten about, the Spurs will need this kind of production from Jefferson throughout the season to have a chance to unseat the mighty Lakers. What has sparked this resurgence in Jefferson's game? Probably just being around a group of proven winners who expect nothing less than a title. However, we sneakerheads like to point in the direction of the shoes.
This season, Jefferson has been rocking player exclusive colorways of the Air Max Hyperdunk 2010. One of the interesting things about San Antonio's colors is how reflective they are of the organization's attitude. All business, no play. Jefferson's sleek "Home" PE features a white upper, accented by black on the inner liner, tongue, heel counter and Swoosh. Metallic silver works branding on the strap and heel, as well as trim throughout. Jefferson's "RJ" logo appears in silver on the tongue, while black finishes up the 360-Air unit and outsole.
