Absent last week, Nate Robinson makes his #SoleWatch Power Rankings debut on this week’s list.

In his return to the Nuggets’ lineup, Robinson came out the gate swinging with his usual assortment of Jordan retros. There were a few familiar pairs in his rotation, but the ‘Redwood’ 14 is a shoe we don’t see hit the hardwood too often. That unpredictability is why you always have to keep an eye out for what Nate is wearing.

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook also had a strong showing, moving up a spot from last week with his seemingly endless supply of Jordan PEs. Among them, a brand new Air Jordan 10 created to match the Thunder’s navy and white alternate uniforms. Westbrook, who’s emerging as an MVP candidate, dropped 31 points and 10 dimes on the Lakers in his exclusives.

Trending down was Eric Bledsoe, who followed up an exceptionally strong week by wearing a few par-for-the-course Nike LeBrons. That’s pretty typical of Bledsoe, who’s a little more reserved with his best pairs than most players, so his appearances and positioning in these rankings may be sporadic throughout the season.
