It shouldn’t really be a big deal when an NBA player wears a shooting sleeve during a game. Unless it’s a Supreme shooting sleeve. And he’s wearing it on his leg.
That’s exactly what Washington Wizards small forward Kelly Oubre did on Tuesday night against the Nets, and what better place to do it than in Brooklyn, home of the latest Supreme store?
This isn’t the first time an athlete has stepped out to play in a piece of hyped clothing. Nate Robinson famously wore a pair of YEEZY 2s during an NBA game and Nick Young has rocked a pair of Supreme x Nike Foamposite Ones, and a pair of the OG YEEZY 750s, while playing.
As expected, Twitter was ablaze with reactions, not just to the fact that Oubre was wearing a Supreme piece on the court, but also to the fact that, instead of wearing it on his arm —like you’re supposed to — he wore it on his leg.
Scroll through some of the best reactions below.
Here it is in action
Some argued that this day would go down in history
And others thought he deserved it all
We see you too, Oubre
The man himself on why he wore it
The shooting sleeve is part of an ongoing collaboration between the NBA, NikeLab, and Supreme, who are reportedly working on a set of three collaborative jerseys.
Meanwhile, if you loved Supreme’s raunchy Christmas tee, you’ll love this brand.
