LeBron was having a pretty good game in his LeBron 11 “Miami Nights” — 33, 8, 8 — until the Sacramento Kings showed up in overtime to nab a 108-103 decision on Friday night.
And to add injury to insult, LeBron strained his right groin in the process, putting his participation in tonight’s big game against the Trail Blazers in jeopardy. Miami is already dealing with a banged up Dwyane Wade (knee), Ray Allen (right knee tendinitis), and Birdman (back).
Still, the LeBron 11 “Miami Nights” got floor time, displaying a solid grey outsole instead of icy blue translucent tread. Which do you like better? You can let us know in the comments. And how about LeBron busting out yet another tomahawk dunk like the one earlier this year and his rookie season for the Sac-town fans?
In other kicks news, Nick Young kept his sneaker rotation rotating with the Zoom Kobe III Prelude in Salt Lake City. The seventh year vet out of USC has been carrying the Lakers scoring load while Kobe is out, pouring in 21 points against the Jazz and averaging a team-high 15.9 points and 38.8% from three-point range.
Get a look the best kicks from Friday ahead, including LeBron, Swaggy P, Iman Shumpert in the white and black adidas Crazy 1, DeMar DeRozan trying out the Air Jordan X Shadows in NYC, Anthony Morrow moving to the PEAK Team Lightning, and much more…
