Here’s the thing about the end of the school year: If you’re a real ballplayer, basketball is just warming up. What I mean by that is sometimes the season isn’t even the highlight of your year. In the summer, there are AAU tournaments that last all weekend, have you playing five games in two days and drinking approximately 19 Gatorades, and then there are summer camps with loads of college scouts, and even summer league games with the high school where you get to see which young guys are actually working on their games and who is ready to supplant an older, more experienced player. The game doesn’t end. It doesn’t ever end if you love it.
I remember always being intrigued by other sports like baseball and football. In the end, though, I never played them after a certain age. I couldn’t NOT play ball all year.
If you are like me, you’re probably looking for some new kicks to sport on the courts this summer. For that, look no further than the new “Elevate” pack from Nike Basketball‘s Elite series. All three sneakers were some of the most promising shoes released this year, and with the recent launch of the Elite series, they got upgraded looks and sneaker technology.
From the Kobe X to the LeBron 12 to the KD7, make sure you know what you’re getting before they launch for real today at Champs Sports. Trust us, after reading this, you won’t want to miss them. Here are 5 Things That Make the Nike Basketball Elite “Elevate” Pack Different From the Competition.
