Rip Hamilton's shoe collection would make Chris Paul blush.
All it takes is a quick glance at Hamilton's Twitter profile to know that he is a "sneakerhead." But we may not have realized the magnitude of Hamilton's obsession until he posted a new photo on Instagram. The image is of the 6-foot-7 Hamilton standing in a U-Haul van with boxes of sneakers packed above his head.
"Tbt," Hamilton wrote. "Had to many sneakers in the crib had to fill up 2 u-hauls to put them in another spot. #brandjordan #sneakerhead #sneakernews #holdat"
Hamilton is not shy about showing off his massive sneaker collection, which might very well be the largest in the league. Whereas some athletes have "sneaker closets," Hamilton, it appears, has a sneaker storage facility.
Just added more Js to the collection. Niceee. twitter.com/ripcityhamilto…
