While most of his teammates were honoring Martin Luther King Jr. with special pairs of the Nike Zoom Kobe V, Pau Gasol did so using a different Nike basketball shoe. We already know that the Los Angeles Lakers big man enjoys balling in higher-top sneakers like the Nike Hyperize silhouette, as we’ve seen pairs of his own Player Exclusives designed for him. Last night Pau once again opted for sporting the Nike Hyperize, but this time they came in the same colorway as executed on the special edition Nike Zoom Kobe Vs that also paid tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. Enjoy pictures of the Nike Hyperize “Martin Luther King Jr. Day” in action after the jump. As with the Nike Zoom Kobe V, no concrete release information regarding this Nike Hyperize is known yet; however, we’ll bring you it should any come up. Which of the two exclusive MLK Jr. Day Nike basketball surprises do you think looks best?
