It's been a busy week for adidas Basketball, who launched Dwight Howard's new signature shoe, returned the Real Deal to retailers, unveiled its All-Star Footwear Collection and rolled out 90s inspired Hardwood Classics uniforms for seven teams.

Additionally, Brook Lopez was selected by the commissioner as an injury replacement for the All-Star Game. This is the first All-Star appearance by Lopez, who is currently averaging 19 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocks.

Also, Damian Lillard continued his sweep of this year's Rookie of the Month honors by receiving his third-straight award yesterday. Lillard led all rookies in scoring (17.7 ppg), assists (6.8 apg) and minutes (39.6 mpg).

On the court, the Crazy Fast is emerging as the go-to shoe for adidas athletes during the second half of the season. Players like Nicolas Batum, Jeff Teague and Rodney Stuckey broke out new colorways, in addition to the styles we've seen debuted in recent weeks.

Still a lot of love for the Top Ten 2000, including a few Grizzlies lacing up a "Rivalry Pack" colorway. Deshawn Stevenson and Luc Mbah a Moute join Arron Afflalo in rocking the new Crazy Light 2 Low, while Mike Conley, Tony Allen and Lillard each wore different colorways of the Rose 3.

Look for these in this week's adidas Basketball NBA Sneaker Watch.
