From Nike Air Yeezys to Just Don x Air Jordan IIs, it doesn't seem like many sneakers are off-limits for Phoenux Suns swingman PJ Tucker. We've already seen his insane heat-filled locker, and although Tucker breaks out heat on a nightly basis, he says there is actually one sneaker you won't catch him playing in.
"Everybody is begging for me to play in the [Nike] MAGs, but I can not play in the MAGs. I can't do it." Tucker told Sole Collector in an new interview, so don't get your hopes up on seeing him in the self-lacing Back to the Future kicks anytime soon.
Meanwhile, Tucker says the sneakers that have garnered the craziest reaction are the "Red October" Yeezys 2s. "Everybody was like, 'I can’t believe you did that.' I wore both Zen Yeezys — the 1s and the 2s — but when I brought the Red Octobers out, it was another level."
As for the never-ending Yeezy jumping over the Jumpman debate, it's clear where Tucker stands. "Nothin' will ever jump over the Jumpman... Yeezys aren't even basketball shoes. You can play in 'em, but they're not basketball shoes," he said, adding that "The Yeezy 2 actually were not that bad to play in. They've got good grip; the lace locks are good. I love playing in the Yeezy 2, I'm not even going to lie."
