Tomorrow, Nike’s greatest basketball athletes of this generation will embark upon a no-looking-back journey with one goal in mind – gold. LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Blake Griffin are all depended on by their teams to lead, and each does it in distinct ways; LeBron uses his athleticism and all-around game to get his team involved, Kobe utilizes his experience and ability to handle the pressure, while Blake will be a step further than his opponents with his unmatched energy. All three players will utilize the Nike Basketball Elite Series line of footwear, strengthened with carbon fiber, Kevlar, and Flywire. You two can join the cause by getting the entire Elite Series on your feet tomorrow, as select Nike Basketball retailers will have these high-end top-flight basketball sneakers in stock. Both the Home and Away renditions of the Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite, Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite, and Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Elite are all hitting stores tomorrow, so don’t miss out by copping your pair in-store tomorrow morning or right now on eBay.
