After spending seven seasons with the Trail Blazers, Nicolas Batum got a fresh start with the Hornets for the 2015-16 season. In the summer of 2016, he resigned with the team for a cool $120 million over five years, but now finds himself at the end of the rotation with the 76ers.
While most NBA players put on a new pair of shoes every couple of games, Batum is known around the league for wearing the same pair of shoes for the entire season. Over much of 2016-17, Batum wore the D Lillard 2s from Adidas. After switching to Jordan Brand, Batum has worn a number of Air Jordans and the Jumpman silhouettes, and now this season is opting for the Air Jordan 38s.
