NBA players collect shoes. Not everybody goes Joe Johnson on it, but these are basketball fans who have money and the hookups to get whatever shoes they want. They don’t pay for most of them. They go nuts.
Wizards’ guard Jordan Crawford keeps his in the fridge. At least if you think the photo he put on Instagram wasn’t staged. (You can see the full size image below.)
Trey Kirby of TBJ noted that these are Kevin Durant shoes, so maybe the message is that he is cold blooded. It’s not that he is ice cold (at least Thunder fans hope so heading into the finals).
Anyway, this makes a great twitter avatar. Not switching mine, just sayin’.
I decided to try this. My wife was less than thrilled.
