Even in year 17, LeBron James can come from outta nowhere to surprise a shot-taker. Youngbloods like Portland’s Anfernee Simons learn this the heard way.
In this game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Trail Blazers, Simons was racing up the court following a rebound. The quick guard jumped early and double clutched his way to what Simons thought was an easy layup. The delay allowed the King to time the block, swatting the shot off the backboard. The Moda Center was buzzing following the fourth quarter swat.
The sneakers James wore for this moment 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 an orange and white player exclusive, which is currently available.
