You want to know how good Maya Moore is? This season she averaged 23.9 points per game for Minnesota, destroying virtually everyone in the entire league, averaging nearly four more points per game than the next closest player (Skylar Diggins), and won the league MVP. But even as her play earned her the nickname “Monster” from the Los Angeles Sparks’ interim coach, Penny Toler, we all know putting the ball in the hoop — she just had 32 points against Phoenix in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals — isn’t the 6-0 forward’s only skill.
As a Jordan Brand athlete, girl has serious sneaker game. She flaunts it almost every week on social media, and we can’t be the only ones who think that when Tulsa coach Fred Williams recently called her the “Michael Jordan of this league” he wasn’t only speaking of her skill as a basketball player.
With the release of the Air Jordan XX9 here, and with Moore being one of the first basketball players to debut the sneaker, we figured now was as good a time as any to showcase some of her hottest sneaker photos.
