LeBron James will remember June 21, 2012 as a “golden moment” of his career – his first ever NBA Championship. It was the perfect storm of accolades, as LeBron not only won the golden trophy, but was awarded the trophy of League MVP. Nike Basketball will celebrate his achievements with what appears to be a very limited release of the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Championship Pack’, which at this point looks like two distinct pairs of the LeBron 9. We’ve already shown you the MVP version, but the Championship version is yet to be revealed, but keep in mind that LeBron’s retail side-project UNKNWN in Miami will release the LeBron 9 ‘Championship Pack’ this Saturday, August 11th, with a raffle-style release beginning tomorrow. In the meantime, be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more updates regarding this development.
Nike LeBron 9 ‘MVP’/’Championship Pack’
Hypebeast alert! Sorry, i just saw the word 'limited', which means if you wear these you are indeed a hypebeast. Which is a bad thing, because that makes you a trend follower, and not a real sneaker head. Limited is for losers. These are releasing on Aug 11th? So what time are we expecting the following Ebay release? As thats where they will all end up. Dont know why you would bother lining up or entering a raffle... just wait till they release and then hit up Ebay... like you would every other 'limited' release these days.
P.s you KNOW these would just be some general release colorways that would sell like a general release, but they give you a gimmick like a little 'pack' ...and a theme like gold medal or something, then just make them limited only at one store, hard to get. and voila... hypebeasts drooling, re-sellers pouncing. Instant "Classic" ... lol. Suckers get played.
I like how Nike waited to the last minute to give us the release date. Jordan brand should do that it would cut down on some of the hype.
@BlackAndBent does have a point here !!!
