It's early in the season, but the Lakers are playing arguably their most important game of the season on Tuesday night as they try to keep the Warriors from setting a record for the best start to an NBA season. Big games call for big shoes, and Nick Young opted for a very special pair for the game, as he posted on Instagram.
If those shoes look familiar to some of you, it's because they're from Gilbert Arenas' outstanding 2007 shoe line. Nick Young had to go above and beyond to get the shoes, because they weren't in his well-maintained shoe house:

Given what Arenas has gone though in the past week, as he filed a lawsuit against his former financial management firm and listed his Los Angeles home for sale, he undoubtedly appreciates his former teammate thinking of him and wanting to channel his inner Agent Zero ahead of the big game.
