Replaying Nike's Battle Force Sunday
Battle Force Sunday came to Melbourne as part of an epic 35th birthday celebration for the Air Force 1. Battle Force was a collaborative effort between Nike, Foot Locker and Melbourne Streetball Madness. If you missed out on the action, don't stress: here's the replay.
Battle Force saw Essendon Airport's Hangar 85 transform into a basketball court, with 5x5 teams going head-to-head to win a sweet $25k haul of prize money. But it wasn't just the players who got the chance to ball out. Spectators were treated to a performance from Bliss n Eso.
A half-court pick-up game ran throughout the day, letting those who were inspired by the on-court action show off their stuff. Barbers from Brother Wolf came through with the ultimate assist: fresh cuts were on deck if you went too hard in the paint (or got caught out in the rain).
Nike's new NBA merch was out in full force: we spotted jerseys, low tops from the NBA AF1 Pack, plus more. Check out our gallery for the full event recap.
