The Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors are currently slugging it out in the NBA Finals. As those two sides battle to cement their legacies, Nike is reminding us about another historic Finals series. The 2016 NBA Finals were chopped full of drama. Draymond Green’s suspension, the Cavs coming back from being down 3-1, Kyrie Irving’s Game 7 heroics. The latter of which is a moment that this upcoming release has us thinking about.
When Kyrie hit that dagger 3 over Stephen Curry he did so in a Black and Metallic Gold colorway of the Nike Kyrie 2. Three years later his sixth signature model the Nike Kyrie 5 is getting the same color treatment. Coincidentally (or not so coincidentally), this colorway will drop on the would-be date of Game 7 of this year’s NBA Finals.
