So, Game 3 between the Capitals and Penguins is something else. With Washington down 2-0 in their second-round Stanley Cup playoff series, you just knew the intensity was going to ramp up as we moved to Pittsburgh.
No one, however, expected what Game 3 has wrought.
We’ve got big hits, injuries to big players, goals disallowed, and so much more. There’s a reason people billed this series as must watch entertainment, so let’s count the ways Game 3 has been utter chaos.
Why? Why would a shoe for a player who has yet to be drafted come in at such a high price point?
For reference, LeBron James, a four-time NBA Most Valuable Player and three-time NBA champion, has sneakers currently retailing for $175. Two-time MVP Stephen Curry’s shoes sell in stores for $99.99, and James Harden’s adidas shoes come in at $140. Even Kevin Durant’s KD9s retail Dallas Cowboys Cheap Jerseys between $120-150 depending on the colorway, and Paul George’s inaugural PG1 sneaker debuted at $109.99.
The hype around Ball is undeniable. The talented sharpshooter had a standout freshman season at UCLA, leading the Bruins to a Sweet 16 appearance in the NCAA tournament. He will undoubtedly be drafted in the top three of the 2017 NBA draft.
Maybe Big Baller Brand doesn’t have a distribution model just yet. The ZO2: Prime shoes likely haven’t been manufactured in mass amounts. After all, the sneakers have a shipping date of Nov. 24, nearly a month after the NBA regular season traditionally begins.
