With the Knicks recently taking on the Bucks and the Nets playing host to both Chicago and Charlotte, there were plenty of players in town looking to make a statement at the mecca of basketball and the awesome new Barclays Center this past week.

Luckily for us, we get to all skip over a night of watching the Bobcats or injury-plagued Bulls and jump right into the shoes spotted recently at both Madison Square Garden and Barclays, thanks to photographer Gemini Keez. 

Check out tons of sneakers worn throughout this past week during games and shootarounds, from the likes of JR Smith, Brandon Jennings, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Deron Williams and several others.
