2014 - November 6 - Front

We interrupt your regularly scheduled “Wesley Matthews wears Hyperdunks” to bring you this special report: Wesley Matthews wore the Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Detail” last night as he helped the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Dallas Mavericks.  The opening is a little tongue-in-cheek, but it speaks to how much Matthews as been associated with the Hyperdunk.  Over the past year, few players have worn as many variants of the Hyperdunks, thanks in large part to the Blazers colors of red, white, black and silver, so it was a little jarring to see Matthews break out the Kobes.  At least the colors made sense…

As for the rest of the night in kicks, LaMarcus Aldridge wore some 13s when he should be wearing 11s, Austin Daye goes from Elite to EM, Will Barton and Dorrell Wright bring some variety to the proceedings and much more.
