LeBron James has always been known for his jumping ability. This has produced some of the greatest poster dunks in the modern era including a monster jam in March 2018.
LeBron James’ and the Cleveland Cavaliers were in Portland, Oregon for a late season game against the Portland Trail Blazers. With Nike execs in the crowd watching, LeBron darted past a Rodney Hood pick towards the paint, where the anchor of the Blazers defense awaited him. The King soared over Jusuf Nurkic to make the Bosnian Beast “a screensaver” as the Cavs announcers exclaimed.
The shoes that King James rocked for this game was the Nike LeBron 15. This shoe features a BattleKnit upper which provided a sock-like fit, but was also thick enough to provide durability needed for James’ playing style. The max Zoom Air units further provided a bounce needed to posterize defenders.
