PJ Tucker's sneaker choice for the 76'ers season opener against the Bucks proves why he is the sneaker GOAT of the NBA. This time, his footwear choice was none other than the Jordan 11 PE Red Sox, an Air Jordan 11 that has only ever been seen one other time.
First seen in 2019, Mookie Betts showed off the Jordan 11 Red Sox PE during an interview with What Pros Wear, a year after the Red Sox clinched a World Series title. His pair uniquely featured his jersey number, 50, on the back. Since that moment, the sneaker world has been abuzz with speculation and interest in this elusive pair.
Fast forward to today and PJ Tucker was seen wearing the Jordan 11 PE Red Sox, but with a slight twist. His pair sported the number 24 on the back. 24 just so happens to be David Price's number and he was both Mookie Betts fellow teammate on the 2018 Red Sox World Series team and a Jordan Brand athlete.
Given the rarity of this particular Jordan 11, it's plausible that PJ Tucker might have got his hands on David Price's personal pair of the ultra-rare Jordan 11 Red Sox PEs. What makes this scenario even more likely to be true is that David Price wears a size 13.5 and PJ Tucker is a size 14. As they say, if the shoe fits, wear it. How PJ Tucker managed this feat remains a mystery, but it's not surprising for someone like Tucker, who is always at the forefront of the sneaker culture in the NBA.
