With the new 2018 NBA Playoffs just around the corner, Nike has taken the covers off its "Art of a Champion collection," featuring a total of 16 silhouettes from Jordan Brand, Converse and the Swoosh. The number represents the postseason path to the Larry O'Brien Trophy, as 16 playoff wins is the magic number needed to achieve championship immortality. As for the individual silhouettes, there are 14 individual signature models that are "intrinsic to the respective athlete's journey toward glory." Rounding out the collection are two models releasing in June, the Nike Air Force 270 "Gold Standard," done up in a gleaming finish reminiscent of the Larry O'Brien Trophy, and a final shoe defined by this year's NBA Champion.
