Even in year 16 in the league, LeBron James can still bring the hammer. The Indiana Pacers’ Myles Turner learned this the hard way.
With James’ Lakers down big on the road, the King played point guard and brought the ball up the court. An Ivan Zubac screen allowed LeBron to split both defenders and rampage to the rim. Zubac’s man in Turner tried recovering but he couldn’t match the quick hops of the veteran James. LeBron rose up with his right hand and packed one in Turner’s grill, and face mask. As if in disgust, the King stared blankly before gently placing the rock on the court.
The sneakers James wore for this highlight was the Nike LeBron 16. This sneaker featured a full-length Zoom Air unit for a bounce to your step. Zones were sectioned apart on the sole to allow the shoe to flex. A “BattleKnit” upper provided instant step-in comfort, while still being durable for the rigors of the game.
