With NBA All-Star Weekend now behind us, adidas Basketball athletes returned to their respective teams for the final stretch of the 2012-2013 season. While we're still waiting to see if Derrick Rose will return to the Bulls or whether or not Dwight Howard's Lakers can turn their year around, Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs are back in a familiar spot — best in the league. Also in the playoff mix is Josh Smith, who the Atlanta Hawks decided not to trade at the deadline. Could this be J-Smoove's final stretch of basketball in the ATL?

Sneaker wise, players mostly went back to work in team specific or Player Exclusive colorways of the new Crazy Fast. Damian Lillard, Mike Conley and Tony Allen continue to lace up the D Rose 3, while Brandon Knight and Derrick himself have moved on to the 3.5. For the Chicago Bulls' Jimmy Butler, it was the Crazy 8 in University Red/Black, which was recently re-released at select retail locations.

Keep an eye out for all of these kicks and more in today's adidas Basketball NBA Sneaker Watch.

Also, be on the lookout for the Golden State Warriors tonight, when they'll be debuting the adizero Short Sleeve Uniform System against the San Antonio Spurs on ESPN at 10:30 p.m. EST.
