This past weekend the NBA Playoffs put the finishing touches on the first round and stepped into the first games of the second round match-ups. For the most part, there weren’t many surprises, but definitely some good games took place. It may have taken seven games for the Atlanta Hawks to get past the Milwaukee Bucks, but that works out best for fans of Sneaker Watch, as it gave Mike Bibby and Joe Johnson more time to display their player exclusive colorways of various Jordan shoes. Not to be outdone, the Nuggets’ J.R. Smith and Carmelo Anthony also brought out some nice Jordans. It wasn’t enough to lift them past the Jazz though. LeBron’s elbow should no longer be a concern as the recently announced 2010 NBA MVP put up MVP-like stats with 35 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks, as the Cavs took game one against the Celtics.

Check out some of the sneakers from around the Playoffs this weekend below.
