Chances are you haven’t heard about the ANTA KT 1 Playoff. That’s ok, Klay Thompson’s signature shoe doesn’t exactly incite much excitement from the sneakerhead community for a variety of reasons, but one thing you can’t knock is that Klay has been spectacular in the kicks, putting up gaudy numbers under the radar while his MVP teammate Steph Curry gets a majority of the praise. But last night Klay and his ANTAs snatched the spotlight as he scored a whopping 41 points – many of them coming in the clutch – to help keep his Warriors alive and force a Game 7 in Oakland on Memorial Day.
As for the rest of the night in kicks, Steph did his part with 31 points in his Under Armour Curry Twos, Dion Waiters broke out some Kobes in a rare switch from his playoff Kyries and Russell Westbrook wore Jordans both new and relatively old.
