Looking to build on their big win against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, the Orlando Magic continued their home stand by hosting the now Gerald Wallace-less Charlotte Bobcats. Throughout the season Gilbert Arenas has worn several different Air Jordan models, and on a night where MJ was actually in the building to watch the game, Gil switched it up and went a little more 'Amar'e Stoudemire' with his kicks. On the feet of the Sneaker Champ was the White/Midnight Navy colorway of the Air Trainer SC, a shoe made popular by Nike Training Godfather Bo Jackson more than two decades ago.
Gilbert probably won't be taking on a second sport anytime soon, but he had his best basketball performance in weeks in the Trainer SC. Looking more like the Gilbert of old, he knocked down 5-of-7 shots (including 4 from three-point range) to score 16 points in a 100-86 Magic win over the Bobcats. If Gilbert can have more performances like this, Orlando's potential to be a threat in the playoffs increases drastically.
