The big news in the NBA this week was the trade of Rudy Gay to the Toronto Raptors, which also affects the Nike Basketball NBA Sneaker Watch since we will no longer see any of his excellent Grizzlies-colored PE's like the Air Max Hyperposite that many would agree is one of the best colorways of the shoe so far.  We'll soon see what Nike does for Rudy in Raptor colorways, but we'll all miss his rotation of navy and light blue kicks with the Grizzlies.

Speaking of Rudy's Grizzlies Air Max Hyperposite PE, they have some real competition for best Hyperposite PE of the year from Anthony Davis' latest black and teal colorway.  Check them out in the pics below and see what you think. 

Hardwood Classics nights started last week, with players debuting throwback jerseys and matching kicks like LeBron James in a nice red LeBron X PE to match the Heat's red 90's uniforms and Mike Dunleavy with a green Kobe 8 iD to go along with the "Big Buck" uniforms. 

Check out all the best of Nike Basketball kicks worn on the NBA court below, and be sure to weigh in on your favorite shoes from last week's action.
