    My friend says the Air Bakin was originally made for Kevin Garnett, I say Tim Hardaway. Who is right?

    I always heard they were supposed to be Rodman's until he was dropped by Nike (and went to Converse) after kicking the cameraman.

    It's not a sig. Just endorsed by those players mainly. Kind of like the Foam pros with Pippen and Tim Duncan. Tim strictly wore the red, Garnett wore theblue.

    I remember when they released in NYC only bloods wore the red & crips wore the blue... I wore the blue. lol

    When my mom bought them for me, she said that they were Rodman's. It made sense too because the red and yellow seemed to match hispersonality.

    Yep. Neither. Endorsed by Tim Hardaway and Mitch Richmond. I remember the Mitch Richmond's Nike/FTL commercial, where dude was shootin' lights out. Idon't recall him wearing them in games, because he was so into the Air Max Uptempo 3.

    It wasn't demonic. In fact, quite the opposite.

    And yeah, these were definitely rocked by Hardaway and Richmond, but it wasn't their sig shoe.

    Don't remember KG in a pair of 'em, although that's not to say that he never wore them.
