Chris Ross puts a lot of thought into his shoe game the same way he's pretty dedicated to being the master point guard that he is for San Miguel.
Chris Ross is the kind of guy that would make most sneakerheads cringe in fear.
Why you ask?
Well, Ross, the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup Best Player of the Conference, wears his Jordan retros with confidence. In fact, he wears his Jordan retros the during the PBA freaking Finals, creases and scuffs be damned.
Chris Ross is also the kind of guy that actually has some knowledge when it comes to his sneakers so in celebrating yet another PBA championship with San Miguel, the most dominating two-way point guard in the league today brought out some appropriate kicks.
You guys remember the Air Jordan 6 Championship Pack that released three years ago right?
Well, Ross came through with one of them Sunday night as the Beermen beat TNT in Game 6 to win the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup.
Check it out.
"These are the shoes I bring out when we're on the verge of winning [a championship]," Ross said on his Cigar 6s.
"They come in a pack, there's another one called the Champagne. I think last conference I wore the Champagnes and this conference I wore these," he added, referring to the green version of the same shoe which he wore with actual cigars when the Beermen won the Perpetual trophy.
See, Chris Ross puts a lot of thought into his shoe game the same way he's pretty dedicated to being the master point guard that he is for San Miguel.
"Every time we're in the Finals and we have the chance to close it out, I wear one of the two, it's just a little extra motivation," the reigning back-to-back Philippine Cup Finals MVP said.
With the Beermen going for a rare Grand Slam in the upcoming Governors' Cup, this writer suggested that Ross can maybe wear both the Champagne and the Cigar as a mismatched pair if they complete the triple crown.
He says that's practically genius and will consider it soon enough.
"Yeah I might, I'll try. That's a good idea. I'll think of that," Ross said.
