When Isaiah Thomas Flipped The Switch // HyperLive & Kobe AD

words // Nick DePaula:

Even after coming out of nowhere as the last pick of the 2011 NBA Draft to getting actual rotation minutes on the pro hardwood, Isaiah Thomas still wasn’t satisfied to just be amongst the 400 or so players that make up the Association. He wanted to be among the very best in the league, regardless of what his 5’9″, 185 pound might historically have allowed you to project.

After being traded to the Boston Celtics at the 2015 trade deadline, it didn’t take long for Thomas to make his presence felt, even if he’s undoubtedly the smallest player every single time he takes the court. He scored 20 points off the bench in his first Celtic outing, and by the following season, was carrying the team as the nightly starter.

“Every night that I play, I need to prove that I’m the best player on the court,” he now says all these years later.

That surging start with the Celtics eventually led to the very moment IT flipped the switch in his career, being named to the NBA’s All-Star Game in Toronto. On Draft night in 2011, Thomas was off working out in the gym, too nervous to watch the annual ceremony, as then-Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver announced his name just before the night’s festivities closed.

As the NBA on TNT was set to announce the All-Star Game’s reserves, once again Thomas couldn’t bear to watch. He told his agent to simply give him a call if there was good news.

“It’s like the draft all over,” Thomas said. “You don’t want to watch it.”

Not once, but twice now, Thomas has been selected to the All-Star Game, paving the way for his 4th quarter barrages and profile amongst the league’s best to grow beyond everyone’s expectations. Everyone except Isaiah’s, of course.

After the All-Star nods, he simply sat back — “I asked myself, ‘What can they say now?‘”

As the Celtics look to advance into the 2nd Round of this year’s NBA Playoffs, Thomas is once again helping to lead the charge, through an emotional and tolling month that included the passing of his younger sister Chyna. All playoffs long, Thomas has been wearing the Kobe AD, his 2017 All-Star Game sneakers, with handwritten inscriptions honoring his late sibling.

With even more than just his own aspirations fueling him through this spring’s postseason, once again it’s best not to count out Isaiah Thomas.

You can vote for IT’s Kobe AD in our playoff-themed Flip The Switch Bracket, crowning the Best Nike Basketball Sneaker of the modern era.

The Nike Kobe A.D. “Compton” Has an Unexpected Backstory

Image via: Nike

Image via: Nike

Nike is set to drop the Kobe A.D. “Compton,” inspired by DeMar DeRozan’s memory of watching Kobe Bryant play against Utah in the 1997 playoffs. Specifically, it was Game 5 of the series that would have a major impact on the Toronto Raptors star. The “airball game” would see an 18-year-old Bryant launch four separate shots that touched nothing but air. Bryant would later characterize the abysmal shooting performance as a turning point in his nascent career. For a young DeRozan, the game would serve as a pointed reminder that resilience is a key element for eventual success on the court.

The date of the game — May 12, 1997 — is immortalized on the Kobe A.D.’s lace tips, while an image of DeRozan’s childhood neighborhood in Compton is printed on the sockliner. Finally, Kobe’s DNA symbol and signature are inscribed on the heel tabs, following the color scheme of the Utah Jazz.

Retailing for 0, the Nike Kobe A.D. “Compton” launches April 12th at nike.com.

Release Date: 4/12/17 (Wednesday)

This Nike Kobe A.D. “DeRozan” PE is Inspired by DeMar’s First Memory of Kobe Bryant

During the 1997 NBA Playoffs when the Los Angles Lakers faced off against the Utah Jazz, Kobe Bryant had his famous “airball game.” We all watched and witnessed, as did a young DeMar DeRozan back in his hometown of Compton.

The game schooled the Raptors All-Star in the art of dealing with adversity and resilience. His latest Nike Kobe A.D. “DeRozan” PE is inspired by his earliest memory of Kobe Bryant and the lessons he learned throughout that game.

Odes to that day, May 12, 1997, can be seen on the shoe’s lace tips. From there, a picture of the street that DeRozan grew up on in Compton marks the sockliner. Grab a closer look at the shoe below and expect the release on April 12 via SNKRS.

Nike Kobe AD NXT “Wolf Grey” // Release Date

Kobe Bryant’s signature collection continues to flourish long after his final curtain call at Staples Center. New releases of the Kobe A.D. are prominent both on and off the court, and this all-new Kobe A.D. NXT is sure to have a similar fate.

Ringing in at 0 retail – which may cause concern for some considering the proper Kobe A.D. is only 0 – the Nike Kobe A.D. NXT is reshaped and largely a completely different shoe when compared to its big brother. Much like the woven shroud and lacing system overhaul, the outsole is completely reimagined with Nike Zoom. That said, this “Wolf Grey” iteration is perfect to introduce the shoe, as it allows the subtleties to expose themselves without much inspection.

What do you think of the Nike Kobe A.D. NXT “Wolf Grey”? Let us know in the comments section below and pick up a pair on April 3 at Sneaker Politics.

The Nike Kobe A.D. NXT Redefines the Mamba’s Signature Line

Image via: Nike

Image via: Nike

Kobe Bryant has teamed up once again with Nike footwear designer and longtime collaborator Eric Avar to create the Nike Kobe A.D. NXT, a low-profile, highly responsive silhouette that’s unlike any of the Mamba’s previous models. The most obvious change is a new lacing system that naturally tightens based on what the food needs. It’s integrated into the Flyknit upper, drawing the structure together to create a fluid system with a drop-in insole, one that houses a Zoom Air bag in the heel. In terms of aesthetics, the Flyknit upper features a subtle circular pattern inspired by a lotus flower, representing rebirth. There are also secret Kobe “codes,” one on the lateral side that translates into “unhinge,” another on the medial side conveying a message of “end and begin.” Together, the symbology expresses the reawakening of the Kobe line.

Check out detailed looks in the gallery below, and expect the Nike Kobe A.D. NXT (0) to launch globally on April 3 in both grey and volt colorways. Limited availability in North America begins on April 1.

Release Date: 4/3/17 (Monday)
