The Nike Basketball line started in the 1970s and has evolved with technology, materials, and construction. Through the years, Nike Basketball has signed different NBA athletes. Some have since retired, while others dominate the league. While the brand collaborates with the players, Nike goes above and beyond each year to make sure their latest shoe is on top performance-wise. Nike Basketball models have been released throughout the years while some receive minor updates that will resemble the previous silhouette.
