With the NBA playoffs in full swing, I would like to bring your attention to an exceptional shoe that has been released by one of the most polarized figures in the NBA today. That's right, Lebron James. With the release of Lebron's sneakers he's begun to carve out a name for himself apart from the Jordan moniker. However, with the recent relocation of his talent's to south beach, much of the love has changed.
Regardless if you agree with Lebron or not, his talent is a once in a life time talent. Combining the grace of Dr. J, with the strength and physical conditioning of Karl Malone; Lebron has etched out a game that we have not seen since the time of the big "O" Oscar Robertson. Although Lebron may never average a triple double in his career, - mostly thanks to the amount of shots that were taken during the big O's career - he is a sure shot Hall of Famer at the tender age of 26. Why is this relevant?
Part of what made Jordan so successful was a mystique that he carried around with him. People wanted to be like Mike regardless of how they felt about his over competitive nature, or even some of his gambling problems. When you are great people will forgive. Lebron will experience the same love again. People will forget about the decision, and will remember the triple doubles he puts up, and all the "OMG" moments he's been responsible for. His sneakers will reach a peak that only Jordan's have ever reached. The Playoff editions of the Lebron VIII's are no different. Featuring Nike's Air Max Zoom technology in the front, a 180 unit in the back, and a Cushlon midsole throughout, the Lebron VIII will provide a true advantage to any baller.
