Welcome to the NBA Sneaker Watch's Nike Basketball Weekly Recap, where we take a look back that the last week's best Nike Basketball models on the NBA court.  This week saw the return of NBA action after the All Star break, as well as some players in new uniforms after the trade deadline deals.  The top story of last week is the debut of a new PE colorway of the Kobe 8 by Kobe Bryant.  In yesterday's game against the Dallas Mavericks, Kobe laced up a new black-based Lakers colorway of the Kobe 8.  Would you like to see this color hit retail?

It appears at this point in the season, many Nike Basketball athletes are opting for the maximum comfort of the newest performance models over the retro classics.  This week saw even more players than usual lacing up the current Nike Basketball models like the Hyperdunk 2012, Air Max Hyperposite, Lunar Hypergamer, Zoom Hyperfuse 2012, and the ever-increasingly popular Zoom Hyperdisruptor.  One Nike Basketball retro of note this week was Courtney Lee lacing up the Air Max 2 Stong retro.
