It was a battle of MVP candidates as LeBron James’ Lakers faced Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Milwaukee Bucks.
The teams were played back and forth before the Lakers started pulling away late in the 4th. With less than a minute left, the nearly unstoppable James received an Alex Caruso pass. Driving full-force towards the rim, James only had Donte DiVincenzo to beat. Instead of powering through the smaller Donte, LeBron finessed a spin move that left the Bucks defense in the dust. All that remained was a left-handed slam dagger dunk to put away Milwaukee with his game-high 37th point.
The sneaker James rocked for this moment was the Nike LeBron 17 Low. This version utilizes a large heel Air unit, as well as React foam in the forefoot. Synthetic leather and mesh reduces the weight with added breathability.
The King rocked the black, red, and dark grey colorway for this moment. You can find this version HERE.
