Air Jordan 11 PE upcoming Jordan releases 2018,The Houston Rockets, and Chris Paul, have been making headlines on numerous sports news websites after the team’s impressive recent victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. As of now, the Rockets have joined the Boston Celtics to have the longest win streak in the NBA during the current 2017–18 season.
It also happens to be the second-longest win streak that the Rockets have ever had. Of course, the franchise would not have made it here if it was not for the players. Of course, the most notable of them all was Chris Paul, who was laced up in a never-before-seen Air Jordan 11 colorway.The Houston Rockets ended up defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder with a score of 122-112. This was the 16th consecutive victory for the team. Over the past ten years, Chris Paul and James Harden, both from the Rockets, have been the most noteworthy clutch-time duo in the NBA.
By the time the game had ended and the Rockets had won, Chris had managed to score a total of 25 points, in addition to 4 rebounds and five assists. Chris Paul is being tremendously praised for his performance and it is being speculated that he could end up becoming one of the NBA’s top five point guards.Along with being one of the star players of the Houston Rockets, Chris Paul also happens to be an avid sneakerhead, much like his teammate P.J. Tucker. The latter was laced up in the coveted Air Jordan 7 “Miro” during the recent game, but it was the Air Jordan 11 PE worn by Chris that drew all the attention. Considering that it is merely a Player Exclusive at the moment, it is not surprising that it is dressed up in a Houston Rockets-inspired color scheme. It has plain White-colored laces, midsoles and uppers, with contrasting Red-colored accents and icy, translucent outsoles.
This is actually the second Rockets-themed colorway of the Air Jordan 11 that Jordan Brand has whipped up for Chris Paul. The first one was a nearly all-Red iteration that Chris was spotted rocking back in July 2017. Of course, since this one is a PE too, it will probably not be joining upcoming Jordan releases 2018.

Some of the highlights of the 2002 NBA All-Star Game included the self pass that Tracy McGrady made off a backboard dunk. By the end of the game, Kobe Bryant had scored 31 points and 5 assists, which was quite an impressive performance. However, sneaker enthusiasts would have likely had their eyes often glued onto the Air Jordan 17 Low “Lightning” that Michael Jordan was wearing. After all, the colorway was rather eye catching, with its striking Black and White color scheme, combined bright Lightning Yellow-colored detailing and the addition of some Chrome too. Of course, the variation set to join next year’s Jordan releases 2018 looks different.The Air Jordan 17 Low “Lightning” debuted 15 years ago and while it is not exactly making a comeback, its “Alternate” version is equally good.

Some of the Black-overlays even appear to be featuring a reptilian texture, making this sneaker look all the more luxurious.
Air Jordan 9 “LA (Summit White)” Release Date,The 2018 NBA All-Star Game will be played next year at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California on February 18th, 2018. However, it seems that the NBA has changed the All-Star Game format for the 2017–18 Season. For the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, players will be selected into one of two teams by each captain, regardless of the conferences they play in. The captain of each conference will be the player who receives the most fan votes. While 2017 has yet to end, Jordan Brand is already ready to commemorate next year’s All-Star Game with one of their Jordan releases 2018.2018 will not only be the year of the 67th annual NBA All-Star game, it will also mark the Air Jordan 9’s 25th anniversary. In commemoration of both these occasions, Jordan Brand seems to have whipped up a Los Angeles-themed iteration of the Air Jordan 9, which has been dubbed “LA (Summit White).” Boasting premium aesthetics, its uppers appear to be made up of sleek Black-colored suede and classic White-colored tumbled leather overlays. The branding on its heels and tongues are apparently overed in Metallic Gold. Since this colorway is inspired by and reflects Los Angeles, the insoles sport graphics based on the city’s map, and the sneaker is also equipped with milky, translucent outsoles.
As per the new format, two players that are voted captains will then select 12 players from each conference for the 2018 NBA All-Star Game. 5 players, who will be starters, will be selected from each conference, based on a 50% fan vote, 25% player vote, and a 25% media vote. The head coaches of each conference will also select 7 reserves for the two teams. As a result of this new format, players who are currently teammates in their respective conferences may end up playing against each other in the All-Star Game. The All-Star voting is scheduled to kick off on December 25th, 2017, i.e. Christmas Day.
As mentioned, the 2018 NBA All-Star Game will take place on February 18th, 2018, but this sneaker will end up joining the Air Jordan releases 2018 scheduled to arrive at retailers earlier that month. It has already been confirmed that the Air Jordan 9 “LA (Summit White)” will hit the shelves next year on February 3, 2018 and will retail at a price of $190.
