Raptors forward Amir Johnson debuted custom Nike Huarache 2K4s for Toronto’s home opener on Wednesday, complete with his own likeness prominently featured on the front of the shoe. It was a humorous and welcome touch. But if Amir Johnson of all players is privy to custom shoes that feature Amir Johnson’s face, does that mean we’re mere days away from NBA players ditching their Jordans in favor of shoes that feature a caricature of themselves? I sure as hell hope so, it’s just too bad cartoonish players like Robert Swift, Brian Scalabrine and Dikembe Mutombo are no longer playing in the NBA. [via The Basketball Jones]
