You might not have noticed… I sure as hell didn't… but Rasheed Wallace did something in game 4 that he hadn't done in 10 years.
For the first time in over a decade though, during the first half of
Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals series between the Boston
Celtics and the Orlando Magic, Wallace switched things up and wore the
Nike Zoom Sharkalaid.
To my knowledge, Sheed’s Air Force 1 streak dates all the way back to
June 4, 1999, Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. For Games 3 and 4, as his Blazers faced off against the
San Antonio Spurs, the streak began. He wore an all white and
silver pair of high-top Forces for what would be the final two games of
the season, with the Spurs sweeping Portland on the way to winning the
NBA title. Sheed then kicked off the 2000 regular season in an all black and white pair and never looked back.
Straps dangling behind the heel, always.
That is some serious shoe knowledge.
Not to worry, though. Sheed changed back into his AF 1's at halftime.
Yep. This is where we are with the analysis.
