The Carmelo Anthony sign-and-trade pretty well precludes LeBron James from being a New York Knick unless he ends up at MSG during a Shaq-style victory tour. And since he’ll never be welcome back in Cleveland again, we won’t get to see any more dope Hardwood Classics colorways, but these facts don’t combine to preclude any and all blue and orange Nike LeBron sneakers. In fact, if the release timing over the past few years proves any indication of things to come, it won’t be very long at all before the Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’ makes its way to retail. This Cavs throwback -slash- Knicks/Mets getup is reminiscent of the epic ‘Birthday’ Zoom Lebron IV and may be a sign of things to come for 2012’s Year of the Dragon releases; perhaps that explains the detailing on the middle eyelets of these teaser images. Click through for more and let us know how these stack up against the ever-growing LeBron 9 ranks, and stick with Sneaker News for more information on the developing LeBron 9 ‘China’.
