With teams across the league preparing for the NBA Playoffs this Saturday, last night's match-up between Toronto and Atlanta saw the post season-bound Hawks fall to the Raptors. Powered by shooting guard DeMar DeRozan, the Raptors were able to overcome hot shooting from Atlanta's Kyle Korver. DeRozan 30 points, and Rudy Gay contributed another 22 for Toronto's big W.
Although Kobe's going to be out for awhile, players like DeRozan are keeping his sneakers in the spotlight. DeRozan wore the Nike Kobe 8 System, which has been well-received by players of all levels since its release late last year. The model features an innovative Engineered Mesh upper which provides a snug, lightweight fit with tons of breathability. Meanwhile, cushioning is provided by a full-length Lunarlon midsole insert.
