Supreme is back with a look at their upcoming collaboration with Nike and the NBA. On the heels of their rumored Air Force 1 Mid collab, which sees the sneaker covered in the logos from all the NBA teams, the label posted a teaser image of another piece — a coordinating jersey and basketball short from Nike, who currently holds the license to make all the official on-court gear this season.

Lensed by Ari Marcopoulos and modeled by controversial player J.R. Smith, formerly of the New York Knicks and currently of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Smith has developed a reputation for his off-court antics as much as his on-court play. In the past, his DM game has been exposed for the joy of the public (his “You trying to get the pipe?” quote is the stuff of modern romance), and more recently, Smith earned himself a one-game suspension for throwing a bowl of soup at assistant coach Damon Jones.

Given his history of meme-worthy antics that keep NBA fans talking, Smith’s persona as one of the league’s most talked-about figures and bad boy appeal add some welcome synergy to Supreme’s left-of-center mystique. No word yet on when the kit and kicks will drop, but hopefully there are plans for another collaborative shooting sleeve to complete the look.

Now take a look at Supreme’s upcoming Nike Air Force 1 collab, also covered with NBA team logos.
