30 Gifts for Basketball Fans

From Basketball Training Nets to Cupcake-Inspired Basketball Shoes

— December 24, 2017 — Lifestyle
In Cheech and Chong's song 'Basketball Jones', a young boy with an overpowering urge to play basketball overcomes his obstacles and finds his way onto the court; for the friend or loved one with a basketball jones, these gifts for the basketball fan are the perfect solution. For many, ball is life, and these basketball-themed presents are the best way to live one's ball life to the fullest.

As Spike Lee so famously said, when it comes to basketball, "it's gotta be the shoes!" Indeed, shoes are one of the most essential products in the world of basketball, and naturally the gifts here reflect that. Beyond new technical aspects, many of the basketball shoes here make graphical references to their namesakes. There are two pairs of Jordans that nod to lesser-known moments in his career, such as a baby blue pair for his days at UNC and a baseball glove-like shoe reference his year spent in the minors. Further, a new version of the Nike KDX is designed to look like a cupcake because of notorious shade thrown at Kevin Durant by his former teammate Russell Westbrook.
