LeBron James can still get up there with the youngins in year 17.
On this play, Lakers teammate Rajon Rondo was trying to get the rock to the King in the corner. In an instant, James ran backdoor on Pacers big Myles Turner who was too slow to chase him. LeBron finished with pizzazz by catching the ball behind the rim, and reversing the dunk to the oohs of the Indian crowd.
The sneakers James wore for this slam were the Nike LeBron 17. This sneaker features a heel Air unit; the largest bag ever seen on a basketball shoe, providing maximum impact protection. The two large volume Zoom units in the forefoot for extra responsiveness. Knitposite graces the upper, with heat-molding creating the scaly look. As a result of the heat, the upper features more structure and durability.
LeBron rocked a purple and gold player edition for this moment, which is not currently available for sale.
