“In this fall, this is very tough, in this fall I’m going to take my talents to CN Tower and join the Toronto Raptors.”
Alright, that didn’t really happen, but here’s a look at a Nike LeBron 8 custom colorway that could have been true had LeBron James joined Chris Bosh up North. Mizzeecustoms, who has been on a LeBron customization mission for quite some time, transformed the OG colorway of the Nike LeBron 8 V/1 into a Raptors-ready rendition featuring a pearled purple upper with chrome accents on the tongue and a black/white speckled midsole. Of course Toronto never had a shot at luring LeBron (they couldn’t even keep their own star), but looking back at the Canadian NBA franchise, there were plenty of superstars that played in the T-Dot; Bosh, Vince Carter, T-Mac, Camby, and Damon Stoudamire are all notable NBA players who have begun their career up North. So what do you think of these Raptor LeBron 8s? Check out the detailed gallery and video below and let us know what you think.
