We're now already passed the fifteenth week in the 2012-13 NBA season, but there are no signs of the Nike Basketball heat letting up on the court.  This week saw plenty of great shoe from both the new performance models and retro Nike Basketball classics.  Our top story this week is Nick 'Swaggy P" young who continues to impress with his on-court sneaker selections, this time in a vintage pair of the Zoom GP II.  Swaggy P impressed not only us with his latest shoe from the vaults, but Gary Payton himself, getting a shout out from Gary on Instagram (@garypayton_20).  Other Nike Basketball retros that caught our eye this week past were Eric Bledsoe of the Clippers in the Air Max 2 Strong and Marcus Thornton of the Kings in the Air Penny I to go along with the Kings throwback uniforms.

The Air Max Hyperposite continues to turn heads with David West debuting a Pacers-gold PE pair for Hardwood Classics Night and LaMarcus Aldridge in a clean black and red PE.  In other PE news, we get a good look at Jason Kidd's Hyperfuse Low, complete with his logo on the tongue.
