LeBron James Fakes Out Kings D with Trick Pass in the Nike LeBron 17 Shoes

His nickname may be the King but LeBron James was a magician on this play against the Sacramento Kings.

The Los Angeles Lakers were absolutely dominating early in the first, when LeBron drove to the rim. The Lakers legend jumped a little to far from the hoop and motioned at behind-the-back pass. While looking horizontally to his left, James then reversed course mid-air by throwing a dart diagonally behind his head. The no-look pass landed perfectly in teammate Avery Bradley’s hands, leading to a wide open 3. Bottom of the net.

The sneakers James wore for this dime pass 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 violet purple colorway for this moment, which is not currently available for sale.

You can find other colors of the Nike LeBron 17 at StockX, GOAT, Stadium Goods, and Flight Club.
