LeBron has always had a penchant for embarrassing players with his dunks, but this time around he posterized multiple Brooklyn Nets.
The King received the ball off the inbound and lackadaisically walked up the court. LeBron would build up steam as he crossed half-court, with the Nets defense seemingly asleep. James barreled his way forward, jumping a foot into the free throw line. Joe Harris and Dante Cunningham reacted by jumping, but not nearly as high as LeBron did. The Cleveland Cavaliers legend rattled a loud right-handed dunk completely over Harris, as the Barclays Center crowd hooted and hollered.
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.
The grey and green Air Max 97-inspired LeBron 15 in this moment can be found at StockX.
