Converse continues its contribution to Nike‘s “Art of a Champion” releases with the return of its Fastbreak Hi model. Dressed in green and white, this drop pays homage to Kevin Mchale’s unforgettable foul on Kurt Rambis in the 1984 NBA Finals. This moment in the Lakers vs. Celtics rivalry would lead the Boston Celtics to win the series and leave an unforgettable memory in the mind of the legendary Lakers players from that year. With everything on the line, McHale made sure that there would be no easy buckets. The foul would ultimately lead to an infamous brawl, illustrating the level of tension between the rival squads.
Converse’s Fastbreak Hi “No Easy Buckets” retails for $95 USD and arrives on May 17 at select retailers and Nike SNKRS.
