This past week, adidas Basketball celebrated St. Patrick's Day, which meant several pairs of green-based sneakers hitting the hardwood. Players rocked the Crazy Light 2 and Crazy Fast in the Green Zest "Impact Camo" colorway, as well as the "Rivalry Pack" Top Ten 2000. However, it was Derrick Rose stole the show when he laced up a bright green version of his Rose 3.5 signature shoe for Bulls shootaround on Monday.
In player award news, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall continued his season turnaround by being named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. In games played from March 11 through March 17, Wall averaged 24 points, 11 assists, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals. With those numbers, Wall led the Wizards to a 3-1 record wearing his Player Exclusive colorway of the new Crazyquick.
As we're about 15 games away from the end of the regular season, a few adidas athletes have already punched their tickets to the playoffs. That list includes Brook Lopez and the Brooklyn Nets, Serge Ibaka's Oklahoma City Thunder, Tim Duncan's San Antonio Spurs and Kenneth Faried and Danilo Gallinari for the Denver Nuggets — all featured in this week's adidas Basketball NBA Sneaker Watch.
