The whole Bruce Lee theme is one that has been a distinctly Kobe thing for a while now, with plenty of silhouettes from the Black Mamba’s line borrowing the black and yellow pairing. We’ve seen one instance recently of that theme apparently bleeding over into the LeBron category with these Nike LeBron 9 Elites, a port that seems to have struck a chord with customizer Laptop LaSane. Here he brings the Game of Death colorway over onto the Nike LeBron 8, dipping an all white pair with the look and throwing in some red via the laces and down into the lining. Click through for the full photos of this custom and let us know if you’d cop the Nike LeBron 8 ‘Bruce Lee’ at retail. Photos: Paint or Thread

DAMN..... For those who don't know, Bruce Lee was infamous for his yellow and black striped track suit. That's pretty much where Quentin got the outfit inspiration for Uma Thurman, in Kill Bill (it's a homage).
Dj Delz did the Lebron 9 before this one and was so sick! Cant believe the blogs didnt post his Bruce Lee Lebron Sneaker...this one suck compared to his.
waaaack! if bruce lee meant anything to lebron then nike would have made it for him... this is supposed to only be a kobe colorqway for a reason....
the yellow with black accent = homage to bruce's jumpsuit in the game of death. the red...well at least the marks on the bruce lee kobe v's = representing the scars in enter the dragon
Yea he did some IDs. I've been sitting on these for a while but didn't want to drop them once he did his (luckily I got the pics out before they revealed the Elites)
You are buggin,Delz pair is way hotter and im not even a fan of Dj delz but I have to give him his props
