On the night before NBA All-Star Weekend kicks off, the game’s best and brightest brought it on the court.  Ok, let me clarify.  The Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Clippers brought it on the court in convincing wins against the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers, but all four teams brought out the sneaker heat before the basketball world descended upon Houston.  LeBron James and Kevin Durant squared off in their signature kicks with James rocking a “Red Suede” Nike LeBron 10 while Durant brought out this season’s edition of the “Aunt Pearl” colorway.  Meanwhile, Russell Westbrook may have stolen the shoe show with a new OKC-centric colorway of the Air Jordan XX8, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard celebrated the “Year of the Snake” with their kicks, Antawn Jamison debuted another adidas Crazy Fast colorway and Chris Paul continues on his journey to rock as many colorways of his Jordan CP3.VI as games he has played this year.
