Sean Kilpatrick now has his own signature shoe with AND1

Stories of players triumphing despite tough genesis stories are the lifeblood of the NBA G League. Players like Hassan Whiteside, Danny Green, Jonathon Simmons and David Nwaba are some of the most recent to garner major headlines in the NBA.

Sean Kilpatrick is still overlooked when these conversations arise and the heavier-than-life-itself chip on his shoulder remains because of this. He relishes in being known as Mr. Undrafted and he feasts off the motivation he collects from feeling slighted each and every season.

After dominating the NCAA while playing for the University of Cincinnati, Kilpatrick went undrafted during the 2014 NBA Draft. He spent his rookie season in the D-League playing for the Santa Cruz Warriors and Delaware 87ers and earned a 10-day contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves but could not stick.

During the 2015–16 offseason he signed with the New Orleans Pelicans, but was cut after training camp. He began his second stint in the D-League with the Delaware 87ers where he was one of the best prospects in the entire league. He played 28 games with the Sevens that season posting 26.4 points and 3.9 rebounds on 47.2 percent shooting, including 42.6 percent from 3.

After two 10-day contracts with the Denver Nuggets, he had to return yet again to the D-League, but this time it wasn’t for long as Sean Marks and the Brooklyn Nets came calling. He finished 2015–16 with the Nets and exploded onto the NBA scene the following season as a microwave scorer off the bench.

The 2016–17 season was monumental for Kilpatrick as he posted career highs in games (70), starts (24), minutes (25.1/gm), points (13.1), rebounds (4.0) and assists (2.3) for Brooklyn. Now, he’s cemented his place as a key cog for the rebuilding Nets franchise under Marks and more opportunities are coming because of it.

Last year Kilpatrick signed a shoe deal with AND1 to help build his brand. This season he and the AND1 team have taken it to the next level as Kilpatrick has his own signature shoe:
