Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

There are a few things that are bizarre about Nate Robinson's decision to wear Air Yeezy 2s during last night's Bulls-Spurs game. For one, those shoes are ridiculously expensive. Although they retail at $250, the demand for the shoes has become so high that they routinely fetch prices upwards of $2,000 on eBay and other sites. Also, these are not shoes that are really meant to be used on an NBA court. I mean, just look at them:


The gigantic strap in the front, the spikes in the back, and the sheer bulk don't exactly scream, "Meant to maximize your athletic performance." Robinson found this out the hard way, and swapped his Yeezys for a pair of Jordans after going 1-8 from the field in the first quarter. We're pretty sure this is the last time we'll see a pair of Yeezys on an NBA court, but we salute Robinson for his boldness.
