The Sprewell ‘Dada’ kicks with spinners on them are coming back

NBA stars have been the flashiest athletes for a long time now. Russell Westbrook’s wild outfits are just the latest evolution of what basketball players have been doing for a while.

In 2001, NBA All Star Latrell Sprewell unveiled his signature shoe with Dada. The Dada Supreme Spinners featured actual spinning rims on its side in the most early 2000s thing of all-time.

Everyone has seen these sneakers. Honestly they’re goofy as hell, but how gangsta is it to just have spinners on your sneakers.

Sprewell brought mad attention to himself in the early 2000s while balling out in his spinners. The aesthetic itself fits in today’s hip-hop culture so well.

With the throwback 90s theme artists have been fucking with recently, these kicks could definitely make a comeback. Sprewell’s recent Twitter announcement showed that resurgence might be a reality.

Yesterday the former Knick posted an old picture of his spinners with the caption “These might make a return soon.”

After an hour of receiving support from fans on Twitter, Latrell came back and told everyone the sneaker was dropping sometime in 2018.

So I guess they’re scheduled to drop soon? I don’t know the legitimacy of Sprewell’s tweets but if it is true then we’ll all have spinners on our feet next year.

Even Kevin Garnett showed support to the retired All Star.

Along with receiving countless support tweets, Twitter had to throw some jokes at him.

Memes are a business now, might as well embrace them.

To be honest the sneakers can be type fly if worn right. Nostalgia always sells and who wouldn’t want to rock spinner on their kicks?

These two kids on Twitter already modeled a pair proving how we can properly bring the early 2000s into 2018.

Hopefully Sprewell does have more details about the release date. Until then let’s just look at old colorways and get our fits ready.

The saddest moments in New York Knicks draft history

“With the 8th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks select…” an absolute bust.

That’s how most Knicks fans are expecting it to go down at tonight’s NBA draft. Can you blame us though? The Knicks are notorious for making laughably horrible picks on draft night. I’m still trying to shake off that Tim Hardaway Jr. pick.

The Knicks have spent the better part of the last 15 seasons as a laughing stock in the NBA. The front office has been terrible, and so has the on court performance. I never thought I would say this, but someone please bring back Steve Novak and those #Knickstape years.

This year’s draft class is already thought to be one of the deepest in recent memory — filled with NBA-ready talent, playmakers, and potential All-Stars.

Fans of every team expect to walk away with instant upgrades. Except for Knicks fans, who are reliving some of team’s dumbest draft moments.

No other team has mastered the art of ruining draft potential the way the Knicks have. Who else would think to draft a Heisman winner to run the point?

What will it be this year? Do we miss out on a future Hall of Famerย by one pick? Do we pass on a surprise star for a guy with “mad potential”? Or do we draft an All-Star talent player and trade him away for god knows what?

Hopefully Phil Jackson doesn’t pull the ultimate power move and trade the 7 foot Latvian unicorn we call Porzingod. He’s been the only bright spot on this team. The only thing that trade guarantees is a frenzy of salty Knicks fans roasting Phil Jackson to no end on Twitter.

Whatever it may be, Knicks fans better equip themselves with plenty of booze if they’re watching tonight’s draft. They’re gonna need it to drown out another year of sorrows.

It could be worse though, you could be a Brooklyn Nets fan.
