Meyers Leonard has been opening eyes early in his NBA career thanks to some truly spectacular alley-oop finishes
and poster dunks
. But Meyers has game that goes beyond the court. The 20-year old rookie has one of the most extensive shoe collections among current Trail Blazers and has drawn accolades, for example, for wearing a pair of Nike N7 Zoom KD 4's
at the 2012 rookie photo shoot.
More recently, Meyers upped his sneakerhead credentials when he posted a picture
of a new pair of Nike Air Jordan VII's from the "Golden Moments Pack
" released this August to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the "Dream Team." Meyers bought the shoes as a part of the pack, and hence, also has a pair of white and gold Air Jordan VI's, though he said he's too scared to wear those outside yet, which is understandable. Even rookies know you have to be strategic when it comes to wearing white sneakers outdoors during an Oregon winter.
