The 10 Most Iconic NBA Playoff Sneaker Matchups of All Time

Nike Air 2 Strong High vs Spalding Hakeem The Dream 

Players: David Robinson vs. Hakeem Olajuwon
Year: 1995 

The Admiral and The Dream held it down in Texas as two of the greatest centers to ever play the game. Somewhat evenly matched on the court, Robinson held a tremendous advantage when it came to kicks — his Nikes easily eclipsed Olajuwon's assortment of Spaldings. That said, he who had the best sneakers didn't always win — a valuable lesson for anyone.
