NBA playoffs start this weekend so I want to look at some basketball today. I've never been a fan of the Prizm or Optic cards but they seem to be all the rage so I had grabbed some 2016-2017 Donruss Optic basketball. I just don't get the appeal. Don't get me wrong. I'm happy for those collectors who do but there is just something about these I don't care for. I know I don't like how the cards are so hard and tend to bow and they may really be all it is. On to these cards, I was good with the regular offering of Donruss basketball cards and these are similar so no issues with the design.
I was pretty happy with my pull that included personal favorite Kawhi Leonard, a Greek Freak Court Kings and LeBron James. I also pulled a Hall Kings card which, along with the Court Kings, are my favorites from these sets. I understand these are favorites of many card guys but I probably won't put much more money into these brands.
