Once again, The Hoop Doctors were fortunate enough to receive an invitation from adidas to attend their VIP Gifting Suite at NBA all-star weekend and made the trip to rep the site. We stopped by last year in New Orleans and did the same this year in New York as well.
After checking in, we were immediately pointed towards a photo shoot, of sorts. But the twist was that we would be the ones in the shoot. We were given official adidas all-star gear to don before jumping in front of the camera for some professional shots. We were able to take those with us as keepsakes. Very nice touch by adidas.

Next door to the photo shoot was where they had the products being featured during NBA all-star. Everything from sneakers worn by John Wall to Derrick Rose to Andrew Wiggins, and even Pharrell were on display and they all had their own story.
The adidas staff couldn’t have been nicer or more knowledgeable about the kicks on display as we were given a description of each. The overall experience was great as usual and had a nice flow of reporters and talent pass through, including the NBA TV on-air personalities.
