The world's best basketball player is a Laker. The news of LeBron's move to one of the league's most traditional clubs spread like wildfire in the basketball scene on July 1st. And though minor earthquakes in Los Angeles are almost on the agenda, this message shook the City of Angels properly. Nobody had expected a decision of 'King James' that fast. But what does that mean for the team that has been chasing the success of bygone times for years? How good are the Lakers now with LeBron? The experts are still arguing. Some say they are playoff-contenders, for others they are even title candidates. But one thing is certain: LA is in absolute LeBron fever.
For good reason. The Purple & Gold franchise is hungry for a new superstar to bring them the 17th NBA Championship. Because that's the only thing that counts with the Lakers. While other clubs draw divisional and conference pennants under the hall roof, only championship banners hang in Staples Center. And to have his Lakers jersey immortalized, it is not enough to set records or win rings. You have to be a hall-of-famer. Only then will the jersey be 'retired'. Only then the jersey number may never be awarded again.
And the 23 ... This jersey will break all sales records. The best player in the league at one of the league's big traditional clubs. When was the last time that happened? With the jersey number which embodies basketball excellence for almost the whole world. With a new design that pays tribute to the legendary Showtime era of the 80s. This jersey is THE NBA jersey of the upcoming season. Get yours while supplies last!
LeBron James is one of the most influential athletes in sports history and his shoes have become synonymous with high-tech basketball footwear. From its very first shoe (Nike Air Zoom Generation 2003) to the latest LeBron 15 model, each shoe is part of the sneaker story with a unique approach and unparalleled inspiration. Here are the 15 LeBron signature shoes that have been released so far. The LeBron 16 will be released later this year.
Since the LeBron 15 is set as a professional basketball shoe priced slightly higher, there is still a LeBron entry-level model, the LeBron Witness, and a slightly cheaper high-performer, the LeBron Soldier. Of course you also get both shoes at KICKZ.
