Nipsey's tragic passing has inspired many thoughtful tributes.
Nipsey Husslewas tragically murdered in front of his store on March 31st. The news sent shockwaves throughout the hip-hop community and rappers, as well as athletes have been showering Nipsey with love and support. With Nipsey being a staple of Los Angeles culture, it's no surprise that athletes who play for the Lakers and Clippers would want to do their own unique tributes. One of those players is Montrezl Harrell of the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers will be playing the Golden State Warriors tomorrow in their first playoff game and Harrell will be wearing a custom pair of kicks that pays tribute to the late rapper.
The shoe is a Jordan 10 that has a custom paint job with Nipsey's face on it. The names of his family members are also on the shoe, including his children Kross and Emani. Lauren London's name is even on the pair of shoes.
These customs were made by @solebysir and will be worn by Harrell throughout the entire playoffs. It's going to be a hard series for the eighth seed Clippers as they'll be taking on the defending champion Warriors.
Game 1 will go down at the Oracle Arena in Oakland on Saturday at 8 P.M. EST.
