LeBron James – nine seasons, 3 MVP awards. But during his acceptance speech that was held on the floor of American Airlines arena, LeBron deflected the honor and praise to his family, his coaches, his teammates, and all the other support that has brought him to this point – a third MVP award in four NBA seasons. This great honor has earned him another title as Nike’s ‘Employee of the Year’, and with that title comes its own hardware – a special ‘MVP’ edition of the Nike LeBron 9; blocked in the traditional Miami Heat colors with a red-to-black gradient on the upper, yellow accents, an MVP logo on the heel, and the MVP trophies lined on the interior, this special edition of the Nike LeBron 9 will in fact release to the public in limited quantities next month.

If you can recall, the MVP edition of the Air Max LeBron VII was never released (although a few pairs made it out to lucky hands) possibly due to the backlash of ‘The Decision’, but fortunately that won’t be the case as the Nike LeBron 9 ‘MVP’. Your thoughts on LeBron James winning his third MVP award and joining Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, and Moses Malone as three-time winners? Something to note – every player to win 3 MVP awards or more has won an NBA Title. Let us know your thoughts below and take a look at the LeBron 9 ‘MVP’ below and we’ll keep you updated on any developments.

they shouldve made these elite. the elite aesthetics of the 9 are way better.

If these weren't the MVP edition they'd rot on shelves, this is a really basic team colorway, with questionable blocking, gotta say I'm disappointed

For all you nut hugging ass niggaz on here who grip this guy including you SN, MVP ain't shit! Real kings have rings. This looser isn't winning one of those any time soon.

not that great. if you're not a heat fan they're nothing special. south beaches and floridans at least had some florida-esque culture to them.

I can't believe so many people like this. They might be the ugliest 9's that I've seen.

I wish they would have done a full gradient on these like they did with the Kobe IV Gradient. That woulda been dope

geogre

should NOT have been elites, since this is a regular season award. If he wins Finals MVP, then they should make elites for his ring.

Very nice. But I like the unreleased 8s colorway even more.
