adidas Jabbar — Kareem Abdul Jabbar 

Year: 1974 

Kareem was one of the first to players to get his name stitched into his kicks and he went on to rock the adidas Jabbars for about a decade straight. Hit the video and catch the kicks about 6:20 in when he hits his infamous skyhook over the Celtics for the game-winner. Unfortunately for Beantown it was just the beginning of things.
