In the NBA, the stars always find a way to emerge and prove just why they are the best. Year in and year out, players like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant find a way to outdo themselves, securing their legendary status by unleashing heroic performances that few could ever dream of matching.
This past year was no different. Despite spurts of uneven play due to the lockout, James, Bryant and others managed to leave fans with a full supply of memorable individual efforts throughout 2012. There were triple-doubles, 50-plus point games, and even one 30 rebound night. One of the great things about all this star power is the incredible variety of sneakers fans get to see each player wear, and the different combinations of styles, colors, and features are enough to keep even the most well-schooled sneakerhead interested. Let’s take a look at the sneakers worn for the best 25 individual performances from the NBA this past year.
