The least that we can do is steer people in the right direction and recommend the best budget basketball shoes, Read More

The Best Basketball Shoes For Indoor Courts

To be honest, any basketball shoe that can hold its own outdoors can probably be a beast indoors. (That's why we urge you to take a look first at our shoe recommendations for dusty courts.)

Smith, and Metta World Peace talk about drinking before games but did you know one player in the NBA that did not play a game sober?

That's the reason why I don't call myself a sneakerhead since I haven't bought any pair in its suggested retail price. (Plus, I don't have heat pairs so I really am not a sneakerhead.) That's why I am relegated to watching from afar (albeit in awe and amazement) every single time I see a shoe with a price tag that could probably cover Read More

Who knows, but every young star appearing on this list definitely has a case. Let's start with someone from the most pleasant surprise teams, the Oklahoma City Thunder: 1.)
