DeRozan flexes new Kobes
During a recent workout session, new Bulls star DeMar DeRozan showed off a pair of Kobes.
He was so proud of the unique kicks he managed to poke fun at the Sneaker King himself PJ Tucker, claiming he doesn’t even have a pair.
After dunking the ball, DeMar said: “Ain’t nobody got these!”
“PJ (Tucker) don’t got them?”, DeRozan was then asked.
“Nah, hell Nah!” he exclaimed.
DeRozan and PJ Tucker have a history of being competitive over sneakers
It’s no secret NBA players are super-sneaker heads, collecting the most expensive and unique treads money can buy.
PJ Tucker is widely known as the NBA’s Sneaker King. He allegedly owns 5,000 pairs of sneakers and has a separate loft in his house to store them all.
DeRozan is no slouch, though, owning his own sneaker store.
Not long ago, the Bulls guard called out PJ on Instagram, saying: “I will show everybody who really is the shoe head when it comes to these kicks! I’m just playing it cool. You got another post to show off and I will also show off.”
Tucker replied: “Can somebody tell my little bro, DeMar DeRozan, if he wants the smoke he knows better than anybody where to find me.”
NBA fans react to DeMar’s recent jibe
People reacted to the latest video of DeMar hooping in his new Kobes after it went viral.
Many seemingly thought it was a brave move to go after the Sneaker King himself.
