Yesterday, NBA rookies gathered at Madison Square Garden in New York City for the annual rookie photoshoot. There, the spent the day being directed through a series of incredibly corny poses, while showing off their new NBA digs. In addition to the crispy new uniforms, we get an idea of what direction some of these young hoopers will go in with their choice of footwear. At this year’s event, we saw a good mix of Nike, Jordan and adidas, with guest appearances from Reebok and Chinese Sportswear brand PEAK.
