In a new feature, Sole Collector will be taking a closer look at our daily Sole Watch reports, and compiling a weekly ranking of the players bringing the most sneaker heat to the court. These players will be ranked based solely on their sneakers, without regard for their actual on-court performance. In some cases, as you'll see in the stats listed below, a player's sneaker game may have an inverse relationship with their actual game.

As it turns out though, this week's top spot goes to the hero of Friday night's overtime victory against the Spurs. As Kobe Bryant was busy failing in his attempt at MJ's number-three spot on the all-time scoring list, Swaggy P stepped up and delivered a game winner for the ailing Lakers. Ironically, he did so in pair of Bryant's signature shoes- the Black History Month Zoom Kobe 6, which he wore in anticipation of Kobe's moment.

Elsewhere, the Phoenix Suns have dominated this week's list, taking four of the ten spots, while the Cavs account for two, on the strength of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving's signature shoe PEs. A few notable names, from a sneaker perspective, such as DeMar DeRozan, Nate Robinson and Tony Wroten, missed the cut do to lack of activity, thanks to injury.
