FIRST LOOK: LaMelo Ball debuted Puma’s upcoming Court Rider model tonight 👀👀

Puma’s Instagram caption:

@NickDePaula @ESPNNBA @TheUndefeated Rockets with Barkley/Pippen/Hakeem? Briefly? Know Chuck was kind of at the end of the (signature) line by then.

I had to look through all the game shots to be sure, but Chuck’s Nike line had ended and he wore AJ XIV, Pippen 2, Tuned Force and the Powermatic that lockout year with Pip on the team.

Bynum had a signature with Protege that season. Trust me it was not a fun list to put together 🤣

I wonder if that’s why the logo is white. So it’s not very visible.
