As the NBA Playoffs continue on into a 2nd round already filled with several Game 1 upsets, this week's Kicks on Cards feature takes a look at a classic sneaker sighting from all eight teams that have made it this far.
With everyone from Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant to Plastic Man and even Lawrence Moten included, we get a look at a few forgotten greats like the Zoom GP and Fly-By-U Uptempo, and a few more memorable icons like the Zoom Flight '95 and Air Jordan XI.
Who do you have taking the top seed this week, and what do you make of the unpredictable 2nd round so far?
