Last year’s NBA regular season was considered by many to be the best in decades, an action-packed annum bookended by ‘The Decision’ and an unlikely champion. 2010-11 saw all kinds of unique scenarios emerge, from the NBA’s youngest ever MVP to a Finals winner led by former Most Valuable Player who’d previously been scorched by the Heat in his earlier attempt at the title. But even if Dirk and Dallas beating Miami in the 2011 Finals wasn’t a course of events we expected, it was far less shocking than the rise of the Memphis Grizzlies to a legitimate Western Conference contender.
The Grizz currently find themselves within reach of homecourt advantage in the first round of the upcoming postseason, and though they might not make it to the Finals to face LeBron or whomever comes out of the East, this Nike LeBron 9 Low provides a collision of King James and the Home of the Blues that’s probably more visually impressive than a MEM/MIA matchup. They have a cool summertime look that could prove to be another annual installation in the LeBron summer series; will these make your shopping list with all the heat on the horizon? Let us know what you think when you click through for new images and stick with Sneaker News for release info. via ITSB
