Favorite teams of the SC staff faced off on Sunday night, as the Orlando Magic visited the Sacramento Kings in a showdown between two teams in flux. The Kings hit the reset button early this season, moving forward under new coach Keith Smart. The Magic, on the other hand, continue to deal with persistent rumors of Dwight Howard's imminent departure (in his post game comments, Howard said that he does not believe the Magic will trade him before the March 15 deadline).
Sole Collector was on hand as the Magic eventually won the matchup, outlasting the Kings on route to a 104-97 victory. The game's shoe selection included Dwight Howard's adidas adiPower Howard, Tyreke Evans' Nike Hyperdunk 2011 PE, Jason Richardson's PEAK PE, Von Wafer in the Air Jordan Retro 3, Earl Clark in the Nike Air Max Penny 1, Jameer Nelson in the Reebok Zig Pro Future and 49ers linebacker Larry Grant spectating in the Air Jordan Retro 5.
