While quarantining from his home in Texas, NBA Sneaker King P.J. Tucker took to Instagram today to share some of his collection and interact with fans. He also joined an IG Live session with Nate Robinson hosted by Nice Kicks, during which he revealed that he's opening his own store in Houston.
"I'm actually, which I can confirm now, opening my store," said Tucker. The Better Generation with P.J. Tucker. We're looking at grand opening in October."
A quick internet search turns up an existing (but inactive) website for The Better Generation, as well as social handles. Not much else is known about the shop, but Tucker says they already have some collaborations in the works.
