The sneakers you see above belong to Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson. He wore them in his team’s opener against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night. The face you see on those sneakers also belongs to Amir Johnson.
It takes a certain type of person to want their own face looking back at them when they look down at their feet, but to each his own. LeBron James was wearing some crazy kicks with some personalized inscriptions on them when the Miami Heat kicked off their season, but I don’t think even he would have the stones to put his own face on his sneakers. Johnson proudly shared a picture of the shoes on Twitter before Wednesday’s game, so I guess you can say he has swag. Good for him.

Both the Cavs and Raptors were heavily...
Clearly, the reason why Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson had an image of himself on the front of his shoes (back on Wednesday night against the Indiana Pacers) is simple. Just in case, he ever has amnesia...he'll know who he is from looking at his shoes:(Courtesy of The NBA Mistress)
The Raptors, what can I say about them…(thinking)….(still thinking)… Well, I don’t believe they’re the worse team in the league. However, they’re darn close. With a young roster, I see the Raptors going through a stretch where they don’t win many games, but improvement with the team will be seen. They added Kyle Lowry, Landry Fields, Linas Kleiza, so they will have...
