Lebron “King” James arrived at Madison Square Garden last night, two years earlier than the arrival that Knicks fans (like Dos Un, 4PL, Mob and Cahmodity) really want to see. The atmosphere was electric and James received a standing ovation, that was until his Cavs went on to trounce the Knicks. But there was a secondary anticipated arrival that hit the court and that was what James was rocking on his feet: The Big Apple Zoom LeBron VI sneakers which of course take inspiration from the city that Knicks fans hope he will call home soon.
Sidenote: James is likely to receive a fine for wearing the kicks in the game as they violated league policy which requires at least 51% of the team to wear the same color.
If his footwear is any indication of his loyalty he will be a Knick. Last season you’ll remember James rocked his Yankees Pinstrpe LeBron V’s to honor his favorite baseball squad, the Yankees. He of course went on to drop 50 in the game another indicator that the iron at the Garden is very kind to King James.
All signs continue to point to James living in New York come two years but if Jay-Z has anything to say about it that arrival might come through Jersey’s Newark Airport a few miles to the south. What about staying in Cleveland? At this point its all speculation so in the meantime lets just enjoy the shoes.
