We’re just two games deep (or three in the IND/ORL series) into the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and already the Miami Heat are emerging as a dominant favorite in the Eastern Conference.  Not only has their chief competition lost their reigning MVP and subsequently lost a heartbreaker to the 8-seed, but the Heat are rolling thanks to a supercharged effort from LeBron James.  The King has gone up a gear as he reaches for that elusive championship ring, and so has his kick game with the Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite the most technically advanced basketball sneaker ever released.  This ‘Varsity Maize’ LeBron 9 Elite was designed as something of an alternate look for Miami’s nearly quarter-century old color scheme, a bold, alarming look that’s far from the chill ‘South Beach’ vibes.  Some have called these the ‘Taxi’ LeBron 9 Elites, but even if that name doesn’t stick, NikeStore’s non-stock on this model means you might have to call a cab to get in line for yours at retailers like Miami’s Mr. R on May 12th.  Photos: ITSB

When I just skimmed over this quickly I thought the title was "arriving at re-sellers" instead of retailers then it occurred to me, it's basically the same thing now days

$250 YA'LL CAN HAVE THIS SHIT F*** LEBRON, PETRIE, AND NIKE. THE ONLY REASON THEY GET AWAY WITH THESE PRICES IS BECAUSE YA'LL ALLOW THEM TO!!! SO IF YOU WANT MORE HIGH ASS SNEAKER PRICES GO RIGHT AHEAD AND BUY THESE! NIKE IS TESTING THE WATER WITH THESE PRICES!!! BY THE WAY THOSE $250 ELITE LEBRON'S ARE STILL SITTING ON SHELVES THEY DID NOT DO WELL!!!! YOU KNOW WHY?......NO "RE-SELL" VALUE......KIND OF HARD TO FLIP A $250 PAIR OF SHOES HUH RE-SELLERS????? LOL

alright well last night before i went to play in a league basketball game i said "Ahh i need new shoes why not get the new lebrons?" (i work at champs fortunately so i don't have to pay $250 for them) but OMG they are hands down the best basketball shoe i have ever played in and i am an avid ball player. the comfort is unmatched by any sneaker and they are just an overall great piece of work by nike. i recommend these to anyone, they look great and perform better!

I still dont like this shoe. The toe and the inner side looks like a hyper dunk. And i dont like how the upper is. But i do like all the colors they have out out.

Basically what a 'Game of Death' NIKEiD version of the 9 PS Elite would look like, he kinda ripped that off of Kobe no? Still dope either way

Sneakernews: can we please get some Yeezy 2 posts? I feel like this sneaker deserves at least 1 post a week. I'm dead serious.
