P.J. Tucker is known across the league for being a proven and respected sneakerhead. Countless times, Tucker has rocked exclusive colorways, (super) early releases, and dope NikeiD customs. Last night during the Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz matchup, Tucker kept the heat coming with an exclusive debut of a new colorway of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite. Earlier this season, Nick "Swaggy P" Young debuted the highly speculated Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Inspiration" for the first time ever and now we get this: A purple and yellow, Lakers-inspired Kobe 9. Sadly, Tucker's sneakers couldn't will the Suns to a win. They lost 109-86.
