Previous / Next 1 of 26

We always debate over how ball players of the past would hold up against our soon-to-be legends of today.

Would Bernard King give Melo 40? Obviously we’ll never know (unless scientists get their act together and make with the time machines already, it’s 2013) but it would be interesting to see if the stars of the past would have had an on-court advantage with better technology on their feet. Sneaker Report has rised to the call, here are 25 Classic NBA Players and the Sneakers They Should Have Worn.
