Austin Reaves’ New Lakers Signature Shoe Causes A Stir (Photos)

Austin Reaves has quietly become one of the Los Angeles Lakers’ most instrumental players.

Over the past seven outings the 24-year-old has only played fewer than 30 minutes on one occasion, and he has only scored fewer than 13 points two times.

Along the way, he has also dropped a 35-point outing, a 25-point outing and a 24-point outing.

With Reaves’ stock at an all-time high, his sponsor, the Chinese brand Rigorer, has dropped a new signature shoe for him.

With Reaves’ popularity at an all-time high, folks had some strong reactions to the new kicks.

The responses poured in immediately.

Big picture, Reaves possesses a unique mix of talent and swag. Whether he is pulling baddies courtside, coming up with unique handshakes with D’Angelo Russell or defending his squad against all potential slights – there is a reason fans have really fallen for him.

There are some very real questions at this point regarding whether L.A. will be able to retain Reaves this summer. But that’s something to worry about in the offseason.

For now, the Lakers have a playoff race to focus on.

Will Reaves be able to continue playing at a high level and establish himself as one of the most promising young players in the league? One way or the other, an answer will present itself over the next few weeks.
