If you’re going to debut Carmex-themed shoes, it’s probably best to do so in Madison Square Garden against the Knicks on national TV.
LeBron did just that, racking up 29 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 1 block to help the Heat swipe a 99-93 victory Sunday afternoon, extending Miami’s win streak to 14.
James played the first half in his yellow and red LeBron Xs and switched into a silver and red pair for the second. DWade chipped in with 20/8/8 in a new pair of charcoal grey, turquoise and yellow Li-Ning Way of Wades. Carmelo Anthony poured in 32 points in his Melo M9 “Syracuse” colorway but didn’t get much help from his teammates. Unless you’re talking sneakers; in that case, Raymond Felton debuted some white and silver Under Armour Charge BB Lows.
NBA Kicks ahead with the Heat-Knicks recap, Kobe going for 34 to get the Lakers back to .500, Kawhi following Wilson Chandler’s lead with “Nike Air” 3s, and some other select selections from Sunday’s nine-game slate.
