Tonight, Charlotte Bobcats guard Kemba Walker returns to New York City, his birthplace and the scene of his uprise as a prep star at Harlem's Rice High School. Before bringing banners to Rice and eventually becoming a star at the University of Connecticut, Kemba developed his game in the Soundview neighborhood of the Bronx, an area that was at the heart of hip hop's very beginnings.
Against the Brooklyn Nets, Kemba will wear a special PE colorway of the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn inspired by his love for his hometown and hip hop.
Kemba's 'Bronx' PE sports an aggressive black and silver colorway with a unique print inspired by the culture of Soundview. The tongue features a 'KW' logo and a grey sole finishes off the look below.
Look for Kemba's PE on the Barclays hardwood tonight.
