Responding to a call from DeRozan on Twitter, Dell Treasure, 28 of Layton, Utah, went to NIKEiD and created “a nice, clean sneaker that would work on a lot of different levels.”
One level, off the bat, earned a positive reaction from the Raptors guard, who chose the design from the many that were submitted and will wear it tonight in New York.
“MSG is the last old-school arena in the NBA. It’s a throwback to a time where the game was the only thing that mattered, so I wanted to choose a fan design that was simple and reflective of that,” he says.
You can see DeRozan tonight at 7:30PM EST wearing these Nike Kobe ADs while the Raptors head to Madison Square Garden.
