This past Sunday, several current NBA players descended upon the Chiles Center at the University of Portland, participating in the “Rip City Basketball Classic.” The event, organized by LaMarcus Aldridge, featured players including Kevin Durant, James Harden, Raymond Felton, Wesley Matthews, Jamal Crawford, Josh Howard, TJ Ford and Nate Robinson.

The game saw plenty of run and gun action, with an emphasis on offense, resulting in a 164-157 win for Aldridge’s squad. Take a look at the shoes on the court in the newest installment of Sneaker Watch.
