5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
Earlier this week we revealed Nike’s rumored line-up of Christmas shoes for Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant. One shoe in particular, the Nike Zoom KD V “Christmas”, has only been photographed once and the picture was mediocre in quality. But now thanks to JC1992 of Niketalk, we finally have detailed images of the KD V “Christmas”. This shoe combines a mixture of colors that are placed over a light-blue upper. When you look inside the shoe you will find two insoles that illustrate Kevin Durant dunking a basketball in a pixellated, old-school video game image. This sneaker is scheduled to release on December 31st. Let us know in the comment section what you think about KD V “Christmas”.

New team, same old Dwight Howard. After starting the 2012 NBA season at 1-4, the Los Angeles Lakers have bounced back nicely as they currently stand with a record of 7-7 in the Western Conference.
