Sneakers From The Best NBA Debut Games
STATS: 17 points, 9 assists, 9 rebounds
SNEAKER: Under Armour Prototype 2
This game set the ceiling very high for Brandon Jennings as much of his rookie career did. After graduating high school, Jennings did a season in Italy for the Lottomatica Roma basketball club before his rookie NBA season. That year served as a great wear/test opportunity for Under Armour to develop their basketball division. The first two UA basketball sneakers didn’t release when created, but years later the Prototype 2 specifically was brought out in Retro form to celebrate Brandon’s 55-point game which also came during his rookie year.
