Brad Stevens has great quote about Nike’s ‘smart’ shoe

Brad Stevens

Brad Stevens jokingly had pretty high expectations for Nike’s new self-lacing, “smart” shoes.

During Wednesday’s game between the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors, Jayson Tatum wore Nike’s new Adapt BB shoes, which can be loosened or tightened by manual touch or by using the Nike Adapt app on a smartphone.

Prior to the game, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens joked that he hopes the shoes make Tatum “superfast.”

Tatum was among the group of athletes to put the shoes through rigorous tests at Nike’s world headquarters. During Boston’s 117-108 victory, Tatum scored 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting to go along with 10 rebounds. It had to be the shoes.
