AS the NBA Playoffs continue to put on a show, Nike unveiled a special pack commemorating the biggest moments that made the beloved sport of basketball what it is today.

Each postseason, 16 is the one number that every NBA player aspires for — meaning win 16 games en route to basketball immortality. This number is the difference between glory and a nagging, lifelong regret of what could have been. It is what stands between every player and his ultimate goal.
