Check out Alfonzo McKinnie's custom Warriors-themed Air Jordan 1s




 

Alfonzo McKinnie's latest pair of kicks are cooler than yours.

The Warriors forward had Joshua Graham of The Concept Commission create a custom pair of Air Jordan 1s and they are straight fire.

Graham explains in an Instagram post that the shoes are a tribute to McKinnie's journey from going undrafted to securing a role on one of the best teams in NBA history.

"This custom was inspired to tell a piece of Alfonzo's improbable story. A kid coming from K-Town (Westside Chicago) to going undrafted to playing for one of the best organizations in professional sports. We took our time and added some true 1of1 touches to these."

The shoes even feature McKinnie's "AM" logo on the back and on the sock liner.

McKinnie appears to have found a home with the Warriors. His hard work and hustle paid off last season as Warriors coach Steve Kerr trusted him enough to play him in 72 regular season games and all 22 playoff games.

During the regular season, McKinnie averaged 4.7 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.9 minutes.

With all the roster turnover, McKinnie should have an expanded role this season. The 26-year-old will likely compete for the starting small forward spot with Alec Burks, Glenn Robinson III and rookie Eric Paschall. McKinnie has the leg up because he knows the Warriors system and has the trust of Kerr.

If McKinnie wears his custom Air Jordan 1s during training camp, there's no way Kerr can pass on giving him the starting role.

Editor's note: Grant Liffmann (@grantliffmann) is the co-host of Warriors Outsiders, which airs on NBC Sports Bay Area 60 minutes after every game. The NBA trade deadline is looming, and the Warriors have long been rumored to be "sellers," looking to send away assets in order to shed money and potentially receive compensation in the form of future draft picks. For quite some time, many have speculated that Alec Burks, Glenn Robinson III and Willie Cauley-Stein could be the most susceptible to be traded, as all of them could be rotation pieces for contending teams that are looking to upgrades their benches.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The hope is that Stephen Curry returns sometime after the All-Star break and, even before he has a chance to shoot holes through a defense, gives the Warriors a few elements they desperately need. Meanwhile, the Warriors are facing the stiff headwinds that blow during the dog days of January. In the course of being thrashed, 129-96, by the Utah Jazz, there were too many moments when the despair was profoundly evident.

At NBA All-Star weekend last year, Allen Iverson told Steph Curry that he's in his "top five all day long."

"You know what's funny -- I have that saved on my phone," Curry told Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes on the latest episode of "All the Smoke" on Showtime (the full show will air this Thursday).
