Is Jeff Teague Really Going To Wear A Pair Of adidas Yeezy Boosts During An NBA Game?

Even though it’s been a few months since adidas released their first collaborative sneaker with Kanye West, people are still going crazy for the adidas Yeezy Boost. It sold out almost immediately and is incredibly hard to find. And if you do come across a pair out there, they’ll likely cost you upwards of a couple thousand dollars. Insane, right?

In spite of their high cost, though, there’s one NBA player who is dying to rock a pair during a game in the future. Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague did an interview with Sports Illustrated this week, and he revealed that, if not for an ankle injury that he sustained earlier this season, he was planning on wearing the Yeezy Boosts during a contest. His injury put his plans on hold, but he’s already thinking about rocking a pair of Yeezy Boosts next season.

“I wanted to [wear them],” he told SI. “When I sprained my ankle, that put a hold on my plans.”

How do you think Teague would make out if he did wear them? The Yeezy Boosts obviously weren’t made for playing basketball. They don’t have the support or cushioning that a basketball sneaker does. But at the same time, Nate Robinson once wore a pair of Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneakers during an NBA game, and he made out just fine with them. So there’s a chance that Teague—and his ankles—would do OK if he really decides to wear them during an NBA game.

That being said, we certainly wouldn’t advise NBA players to start wearing sneakers like the Yeezy Boosts during games. Outside of the obvious injury risk, we also hate to see such a highly-regarded shoe worn to play basketball. So keep your Yeezys at home, guys. Or at the very most, break them out before games and then change into something else once you start playing.
