The 2012/13 NBA season did not pan out the way it was supposed to for the Boston Celtics. One positive we can take away from the season was the shoe game of many Celtics. They stood up in the kick department and showed us some heat.
To celebrate this season’s best kicks, I have selected the best 16 kicks from the weekly Green Kick Of The Week to battle it out. It is now up to you, our readers who will crown the Green Kick of the Season!

The Playoffs are here! And with that, I hope to see some awesome kicks coming up. This week we saw Jason Terry bring out a great pair of kicks against the Knicks in Game 1.
This weeks winner of KOTW is Jason Terry and his awesome Reebok Kamikaze II’s. Terry has been wearing Kamikaze’s for a majority of the season, but this colourway caught my eye.
Let’s not beat around the bush, Terry had an awful match against the Knicks. He was a non-factor and couldn’t find his range. I hope he can find his 2011 Playoffs form soon, before it’s too late.
His shoe game was much better. These kicks look great. I really like Kamikaze’s and this colourway is one of the best I’ve seen. The green and black outer go together well with the unique design of the shoe.
Of course, I’d rather be writing about Terry coming into his own in the Playoffs, but for now, his shoe game is better than his shooting game.
I look forward to seeing what the JET can produce in the Playoffs and I’m hoping we see him drain many shots from beyond the arc.
Let’s face the facts. Jason Terry did exactly what we expect from him in the fantastic OT win over Hawks; hit a game clinching shot! The JET truly took off in OT and helped the Celtics record a much-needed win over a Conference rival.
The JET did all this in an eye-catching pair of Reebok Sublite Pro Rise, which earned him this week’s KOTW. These kicks jumped out at me immediately. They feature a camouflage outer mixed with what looks like fighter jet detailing, which makes perfect sense that the JET would wear them.
To be perfectly honest I’m not much of an expert on Reebook’s and couldn’t figure out what Terry was wearing. I have to thank @Celtkicks from Red’s Army for the heads up!
This is an amazing colourway to say the least. Reebok have done a great job with Terry this season, supplying him with a large array of retro and modern kicks to rock on the court.
The JET has worn many different Reebok’s this season and won KOTW earlier this year with his Reebok Answer IV’s. Whilst the Answer IV’s have much more history and are known for their uniqueness, this colourway of the Sublite Pro Rise gives them a good run for their money.
It will be interesting to see if Terry brings out this colourway again, I sure hope he does! Especially if can continue to knock down huge shots in them.
What are your thoughts on this interesting colourway? Do you think The JET should keep ’em or dump ’em?
It’s that time of the week again to take a look back at that player who bought out the best pair of kicks on our Green KOTW.
This week’s winner of Kick Of The Weekis none other than our high-flying JET: Jason Terry.
Jason Terry has worn many different types of Reebok’s over the years. Most recently he has been rocking the Reebok Answer IV’s. These kicks were made famous as the signature shoe of Allen Iverson, and gained Reebok a lot of respect in the sneaker world.
Although Jet has been wearing these for a majority of the season, I thought it was about time he got some recognition for his selection of retro kicks.
These sneakers were re-released in August of last year and have been a very popular seller for Reebok.
Terry has chosen the black/white colourway. The shoe also features a unique zip up the front tongue and written on the sole is Allen Iverson’s motto “Only The Strong Survive”.
In my opinion these aren’t these are a uniquely awesome pair of kicks and with the history they have you have to respect them.
