The 2007 NBA All-Star weekend is perhaps the most notorious three-day stretch in the league’s history. Las Vegas didn’t take any wagers on the game but that didn’t stop guys like Adam ‘Pac-Man’ Jones from throwing a whole bunch of money around. Kobe Bryant captured the game’s MVP award en route to a Western Conference victory, but all wasn’t lost for the East as LeBron James led the blue team with 28, 6 and 6 and rocked the first in a series of graffiti-detailed signatures. The scribbly motif was reprised on the ‘NYC’ Zoom LeBron IV and has subsequently shown up on models like the ZLVI and Zoom LeBron Soldier III, not to mention customs like the ones we showed you back in March.
It turns out that Connor Burns’ handiwork won’t be the only Nike LeBron 8 V/2 to feature the street art aesthetic, as DJ Steph Floss has shown the world the latest in a long line of V/2 heat. The ‘Graffiti’ LeBron 8 V2s were also spotted at another all-star game of sorts, a Monday night tip where the Melo League squad somehow overcame Kevin Durant’s 59 points for the Goodman League all-stars.
