CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND - We’ve reached the final round of the Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament, and we’ve got a match-up for the ages. On one corner is the Nike LeBron X “Cork”, which acted as a tribute to LeBron James’ first NBA Title with the Miami Heat, and on the opposing side is the single most notorious LeBron to date – the infamous “South Beach” that signified his departure from Cleveland to warmer pastures in Florida.
Miami Nights Low 8 should of won... WAY more rare then either of these, much more wearable and comfy, and the colour way is just crazy dope
Corks for the win!!!!! Said it from the gate, Corks vs Sb8's. Corks take it.
I love both models, but the significance of the corks (LJ's 1st championship) as opposed to the sb8's (LJ's joins the Heat) has a WAAAAAAAY more meaningful story. CORKS FOR THE WIN! Besides, I own them. Lol
The China 9's should have at least made it to the Elite 8. But I think its gonna be South Beach 8's over the Corks
Personally, I just think the concept of the Cork shoe and its representation of LeBron popping bottles after he won the finals is the reason it should win. The shoe being made of cork was so creative I can't understand why it would lose to an over hyped 8 with a basic colorway.
I called da final since da start.... I'm goin wit da Preheat 8s since I own them & da 8s are 1 of my favorite Lebron models
Bangs should have beat Corks. I dont hate on the Corks like some others Its a nice shoe BuT i wouldnt even place it n my Top 8 Lebrons. like some others said Championship 9s and South beach 9s were way better looking shoes in almost every aspect.My top 5
1- South Beach 8
3-Miami Vice south beach 9
4-Big bang galaxy
5-Miami nights 8
Final thoughts on this tourny. very flawed from the start. Kings pride would have lost head to head against Sprites , all star 7s and a bunch of others in this list. China moon 7, Solar 8, Yankees 8 and Miami Nights 9 would have bodied at least 10 selections that were picked instead of them. But all in all Very entertaining. And thanks to the voters for not selecting any of those terrible early lebrons namely the any of the 1,25 or 6. thank you
Who decided this...there should be a rule...no one under 25 and who hasn't been in the sneaker game for at least 5 years should be able to vote
You could tell from the start which two would be in finals, mainly because of the type of people voting for them.
to say I'm disappointed with this final match is an understatement. The Corks are a novelty item, not one of the 2 best LeBron's by any stretch of the imagination. Should be the Birthday 4s or Champ 9s from West instead.
South beaches are so overrated! Plus they have the color punk. It's pink for girls, but punk for boys! When we are born we are identified with the colors blue and pink. Blue for penis and pink for split. From day one pink was known to be a color to identify girls. Folks don't paint their baby boy's room pink! Real man wear pink??? That's an excuse to be a girl
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite wasnt hard to call....shoulda known this with this site....
My order is a little different but I agree about the early lebrons...they were terrible for the most part
@scotty8425 I mean I'm under 25 and still been in the sneaker game for over 5 years
@scotty8425 its a good idea but i disagree! i understand you want a sneakerhead with pleanty of knowledge to participate in this tournament. but the only way for that to work is by having them take a test. just cause they're 25 and have been in the "game" for 5 years is crap. not trying to hate im just stating my opinion.
