Kobe Bryant gets a Charlotte Hornets-inspired colorway each year in honor of his 1996 Draft Day trade, and even though that team had moved to New Orleans by the time LeBron James entered the NBA, the King is still the only one of these two Nike Basketball signature superstars to have ever suited up for the Hornets. We’re talking about the Summit Lake Hornets, of course, LeBron’s childhood AAU squad and a three-word phrase that’s come to denote serious heat like the Nike LeBron 9 pictured above. The ‘Summit Lake’ LeBron 9 features a powerful Pure Purple upper that’s a fitting sendoff for one of the most energetic and impressive signatures on record; will you be hitting up retailers like Millennium Shoes to get yours when they drop on March 31st?
