While the NBA is still in the midst of its offseason, today was a work day for the league's newcomers. Fresh faces from every franchise converged on the game's Mecca, Madison Square Garden, reporting for the official Rookie Photo Shoot on Sunday.
Not only does the annual shoot mark the first opportunity to see the incoming class in their new threads for the first time, but we also get a look at what to expect in terms of footwear for the upcoming season. Noteworthy items from Sunday include the strong presence of the re-launched Puma Basketball category, plenty of love for Kyrie Irving's signature line and the usual heavy run of Air Jordan retros. Not a lot of surprises this time around, but after two months without NBA #SoleWatch, it's good to get the hoop shoe discussion rolling again.
See which rookies showed up to the photo shoot in the best sneakers below.
