Nike debuted their 2016 'BHM' (black history month) basketball sneakers last Monday, Martin Luther King Day.  This annual collection started with one sneaker in 2005, the Nike Air Force 1.  Today the collection carries a variety of shoes and clothing.  Jordan, Nike's daughter brand, put out 'BHM' inspired gear as well.  Profits from this collection help to finance the Nike Ever Higher Fund.

Atlanta was host to Orlando on Martin Luther King Day.  Mike Scott, Al Horford, and Paul Millsap are among the players who debuted these sneakers.  Their pictures are below.
