Looking back at the best kicks of the 2017-18 regular season
Throughout the 2017-18 season, sneakers became more than just another piece of equipment. Whether it was the league’s biggest names promoting social messages, up-and-coming stars showing off their creativity or role players breaking out surprising vintage pairs, this season saw more incredible footwear than ever before.
Truth be told, if this were simply a ranking of the most sought-after pairs, Houston Rockets wing PJ Tucker and LA Clippers big man Montrezl Harrell could’ve easily filled every spot. But for the sake of variance, each player is eligible for one top sneaker on our season-ending list. That makes room for coveted collabs from signature athletes like Damian Lillard and Paul George, to exceptional player exclusives from DeMar DeRozan, Kristaps Porzingis and Nick Young, who lived up to his Swaggy P nickname.

Yankees 聽manager Aaron Boone and infield coach Carlos Mendoza noticed the same thing Saturday when rookie third baseman Miguel Andujar walked from the on-deck circle to the batter’s box to hit with the bases loaded in the sixth inning.

The Giants earned their No. 2 slot by slipping on banana peels for 16 weeks, the Jets get No. 3 because there were fewer icebergs and one willing trade partner. So now we have this, we have Thursday night, we have the most interesting NFL draft in at least 37 years, and we have the Giants holding all the (index) cards, same as they did 37 years ago.

It is a unique spot Giants GM Dave Gettleman finds himself in, since in many ways he holds the immediate fates and fortunes of both teams in his hands. Will he pick Saquon Barkley, which would ensure the Jets will have a crack at a quality (and, possibly, game-changing) quarterback at No. 3? Were the last few weeks a ruse, and he’s fallen hard for a QB the whole time?
Either way, it will affect the Jets. And either way, after Thursday night, both teams will have been vaulted headfirst into their futures. Thirty-seven years ago it meant a return of football to a place of prominence in New York after a long tour through the desert. The drought hasn’t been nearly as long this time, it just feels that way.
You will feel different about your team, either team, by the close of business Thursday night. It might not only take a minute anymore. But if they hit the jackpot with their picks? They can take as long as they want. Just get it right.
