Pegged as a player to keep an eye on during this season's Sole Watch, Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Douglas-Roberts started the new year off in a rarely seen pair of Air Jordans.

Douglas-Roberts, who wore a 2005 Nike Air Max Penny 1 Retro during the preseason, went with the launch Air Jordan XX from the same year (along with his short shorts and rec-specs). The model commemorated the Jordan line's 20th Anniversary with a special laser print and is set to re-release early next year.
