Not the biggest 'Melo or Knicks fan, but this is definitely the best shoe release party I've ever seen .. Jordan Brand does it big .

LMAO!

Thats why these super stars want to play in the big Markets ... stuff like this **** is handed to them.

He wouldn't have got that kind of show in a small market... it's just the way it is.

Shoe looks pretty dope in white to me, but nothing new. That light show with the players coming out of the river and the water-exploding dunks though? Pretty epic is right.

No the joke is that they can charge $200 for a pair of shoes. This is coming from someone who has bought signature shoes and Jordans in the past, but theres better things to spend 200 dollars on.

:clap: I can't believe people are willing to spend so much money on a pair of glorified sneakers. I'm not saying you should donate the money to charity, but come on spend it on something worth the money.

And then we wonder why the vast majority of these athletes and owners are a bunch of whinny, greedy babies.

People are going to spend money on something or the other. If you buy an iPhone, iPod, or a new car or what ever you might want, its the same thing. It just depends on the interest of the person. Who are you to say what some one should buy?

I'm not questioning your right to blow your money on a pair of sneakers, I'm lamenting at the thought that you would be so dumb to do so.

All that for some more ugly *** Ball shoes.

That was tight. Idk why they make the best players on the Jordan Brand their own shoe. I mean obviously to distinguish themselves and also sell it. But guys like Kevin Martin, Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace get to wear the retros which are way nice and if you ask me better for basketball. The NBA lockout has forced us to discuss sneakers in the NBA forum.

Aren't these

That was awesome. Jodan Brand has some amazing marketing campaigns. The M8s are ugly as hell though.

Why is it dumb? I don't buy these type of sneakers but it's not "dumb" for someone else too. If a person has a lot of interest in it and will actually wear it (seriously there are people who buy these type of sneakers too and never actually wear them) then I don't see how it's dumb.

Yu-Gi: I summon the M8.

Whatever name: Oh no, it's a trap card!

Yu-Gi: Mwuhaha, $200 to the graveyard!

Whatever name: Oh well.

That was awesome. I'm sure Melo was impressed. I've never seen anything like that.

I could never bring myself to spend 150 on a pair of shoes and basketball shoes at that. Their nice but if I spend that much on them the last thing I want is for them to get dirty.
If you can't play ball in them what are they for?
