LeBron James is right now in the middle of a stretch of years during which he’s been the most decorated basketball player on the planet.  We can only speculate on how long the King will stay at the peak of his powers (or if he’s even there yet), but three straight NBA Finals appearances and back to back championships suggest there’s still plenty more to come.  And while we’re definitely not going to give all the credit to the shoes, an obvious common thread between both championships has been the Elite Series version of his signature model on his feet come playoff time.

With the third generation of Nike Basketball’s Elite Series set to release later this week, we thought we’d take a look back at LeBron’s first round of Elites, and a shoe that we’ll always remember for coinciding with his first successful title run.  The Nike LeBron 9 Elite pushed the envelope both from a technical perspective as well as pricing, and also stood out for keeping a bunch of tasty colorways unreleased. As we wait to see if a third Elite shoe will bring LeBron a third ring, let’s go back and examine some of the best 9 Elites in tonight’s NINE@NINE.

elite = we will charge more and use the word elite to make you feel like it's better

I don't understand the Elite collection. Making an Elite implies they could have made the original better.
