What, you thought NBA guys wearing lowtops was a new thing? Back in the '80s, even the biggest of big guys wore lows. Kareem switched into lows early in his career and stayed there, while Charles Barkley eventually transitioned into strapped-up mids. As for Moses, he wore whatever the f*ck he wanted.
