During the regular season of the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL), we saw a lot of fire retros and newest silhouettes on-court. In the second edition of @kicksmvp, we check out some of the top pairs worn on court during the postseason, from early on in the quarterfinals all the way up to the epic five-game Finals series.

We made sure to list the most of the eye-catching colorways worn, so check it out to see if you agree with what caught our attention during the ABL playoffs.

We gotta hand the ABL postseason @kicksmvp to the newly minted Finals Most Valuable Player, Bobby Ray Parks Jr. of San Miguel Alab Pilipinas. Although he did not win while wearing the red Air Jordan 11 in Game 4, the two-time reigning Local MVP killed it when he matched his kicks with the team’s fiery red away jerseys.

Two guys also came pretty close to the top: Filipino heritage import Paul Zamar debuted the Supernova LeBron XV Lows just as Mono Vampire made their first playoff appearance in the league, while Parks’ teammate and Defensive Player of the Year (co-awardees with Singapore Slingers’ Chris Charles) appeared in the 1995 Air Racer Max-inspired colorway of the Soldier 11 at home during the quarterfinals.

The ABL season may have ended, but we still have the ongoing Thailand Basketball League (TBL) and the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) to spot more on-feet fire. Let us know in the comments if there are any pairs we may have missed.
