best nike lebrons cleveland era 10 Standout Nike LeBron Releases from the Cleveland Era

So, unless you’ve been living under a rock of some kind, LeBron James has chosen to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Is it a move spurned by the thought of unfinished business or preserving a legacy of some kind? LeBron’s letter via SI sheds some light on that, but does it matter really? The NBA just got so much more interesting, you won’t see a team in the NBA Finals with an unsupportive fanbase, and the folks at Nike Basketball can ditch the South Beach colorway for good. Before we move on to the LeBron 12 and the wine/gold combo, we decided to look at 10 standout releases from the first Cleveland era.

LeBron James Signs With The Cleveland Cavaliers

lebron james cleveland LeBron James Signs With The Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James will re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, as revealed in a Sports Illustrated exclusive letter today. Is this a case of redemption or unfinished business? LeBron has experienced success with his first NBA team, reaching the NBA Finals once and earning MVP awards during his initial tenure. His departure in the Summer of 2010 drew plenty of criticism – so much to the point that despite his various accomplishments and NBA titles, his purported abandonment of his home team was the takeaway memory from quite an illustrious career. But LeBron’s return is more than just a homecoming – it’s a move that could potentially win him more rings because the Cavs roster is one that’s ready to emerge into contender status.

What does this mean for his Nike shoes? The color palette will change from White, Yellow, and Vibrant Red to a rich Wine Red and Gold, but get ready for some PE colorways of the Hardwood Classic and CavFanatic variety. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on the Nike LeBron 12 front and let us know what sort of colorways you’d like to see.
