The NBA Playoffs kicked off a week ago and it hasn’t been anything short of pure excitement, unless you’re a Trail Blazers, Spurs, or Heat fan. Paul George and the Thunder have been in a heated back and forth battle with the Utah Jazz and their series may be one of the more surprising ones. Even though OKC has their backs against a wall, Nike is still pumping out colorways of the PG 2. Dubbed the ‘Taurus’ colorway, this new look comes dressed in a White, Black, and Solar Red combination with the Taurus constellation placed on its left tongue in honor of George’s May 2nd birthday.

Being from Los Angeles, Paul George grew up being a Lakers fan and trying to the play the game like the legend, Kobe Bryant. When Kobe was doing his farewell tour, he was giving inspiration and personal challenges to players around the league who he thought had the “mamba mentality” and PG was one of them. Since Paul George has been marked with this killer instinct, Nike is ready to recognize that tenacity with the PG 2 ‘Mamba Mentality’ edition that features a colorway and design inspired by some of the more notable Nike Kobe releases of the past. This PG 2 comes dressed in a Cannon, Volt, and Purple Venom colorway that is as unique as the detailing it features. This one of a kind court sneaker features a full Purple upper that is highlighted with graphics that were used on the upper of the Kobe 6. The all over creativity is complimented by the Crimson inner sock liner, Neo-Blue laces and pops of Volt on the Swoosh and PG logo.

Paul George debuted his second signature sneaker back in January in a Saturday game against the Cleveland Cavaliers and put on a show. Nike and George had one of the best hoop sneakers last year with the Nike PG 1 and now they hope that success will continue with the PG 2. This new signature sneaker features a mix of suede and mesh materials on the upper, an interior bootie system, forefoot Zoom Air, and a new traction pattern. Covered in a mixture of blues, along with orange and white accents, the sneaker is simply more sleek than the first version with a mesh upper and suede overlays along the heel. A bootie sock-like collar is a new addition to the style. Zoom Air cushioning, Swoosh logos on the toe and midsole, Paul George’s logo on the tongues and a marbled rubber outsole completes the design altogether.

Kyrie Irving and Nike Basketball will be celebrating this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles with a special edition Nike Kyrie 4 All-Star as Kyrie makes his fifth appearance in the game.
