It's time to take a look back and recap some of the best Nike Basketball kicks worn in last week's NBA action. 

At the sixth week into the season, it appears that some of the retro heat from the beginning of the seaason is beginning to disappear, with players opting for the current performance models.  They haven't completely disappeared, though, as a few players wore the usual mix of retro models that we've seen so far this season like the Air Flight One, Huarache 2K4, an Air Penny II appearance this week, and most notably, a couple of nice Zoom Flight Five iD's. 

As for the latest and greatest from Nike Basketball, this week saw plenty of  shoes with names beginning with"Hyper", like Paul George's nice new colorway of the Hyperdunk 2012, Rudy Gay with his Hyperposite PE that many of us are drooling over, and a couple of Dallas Mavericks sporting their own versions of the Hyperfuse 2012.  Add in the madatory appearances of LeBron, Kobe and Durant, and the Nike Basketball NBA Sneaker Watch is complete.  What are your favorite shoes of the week?
