Paul George’s new shoes will light up the NBA, literally. Nike, in collaboration with George, has revealed PlayStation-themed shoes called the PG2.
“Buttons inside the tongues let you turn the lights on or off. There’s also a pulse mode where the lights flicker and vibrate, supposedly like a PlayStation Dual Shock controller. According to Engadget, the shoe’s batteries aren’t replaceable and have a lifespan of around 150 hours.”
Braun’s first 14 innings at first were action-packed. He ranged over the mound to catch two popups, scooped multiple balls in the dirt, made an adept tag on a pickoff throw from catcher Jett Bandy to nab Rajai Davis, dived to save pitcher Jhoulys Chacin from an error and committed an error with an off-target throw to Chacin. He has tried to avoid mucking up the process by overthinking. After his first game, Braun told Milwaukee beat writers that he would not be providing daily progress reports.
“(Popovich) told me that he thought it was time. I was like, ‘Oh, no problem,'” Parker said (via the San Antonio Express-News). “Just like Manu, just like Pau [Gasol], that day’s going to come. And if Pop sees something that is good for the team, I’ll try to do my best.”
Parker missed the first month of this season as he recovered from a ruptured left quadriceps he suffered in the playoffs last May. He is averaging career lows in points (8.0) and assists (4.0) this season, not surprising given he’s playing a career-low 21.7 minutes per game. His minutes have declined each of the past four seasons.
The veteran said recently he’s still not fully recovered from his injury, saying “I’m just more focused on my leg because I know I [still] have another two months before I feel 100 percent.”
With that in mind, Parker knows he might be of more help to the team off the bench going forward.
