It took 6 NBA Finals games but LeBron finally finished a tumultuous 2019-20 season with championship number 4.
To rewind the season, James finally got his superstar sidekick on the Lakers with the trade for Anthony Davis. In January, friend and Los Angeles legend Kobe Bryant tragically passed from a helicopter crash. The NBA season then halted (twice) due to the coronavirus as well as racial tension after the shooting of Jacob Blake. Through it all, James made his voice felt off the court, as well as on the court.
James was focused throughout the NBA Finals and game 6 was no different. The near blowout saw James log yet another triple double with 28 points, 10 assists, and 14 rebounds on his way to winning his 4th NBA Finals MVP award. This makes LBJ the first player to win Finals MVP for three different teams.
James rocked the Nike LeBron 18 for this winning moment. The sneaker takes advantage of the King’s speed and power with full-length cushioning using Zoom Air and Max Air. The Zoom Air runs from the toe to the heel where it connects to the giant U-shaped Air Max unit. This fully covers LeBron with impact protecting Air Max and bouncy Zoom Air where James needs it.
King James won chip number 4 in a peach/ orange colored Nike LeBron 18, that isn’t currently available.
