J.R. Smith in Nike LeBron X “Carbon”

Yes, we’re talkin’ ’bout practice and not an actual NBA game, but what went down at Knicks training facility and J.R. Smith is worth noting. During a team training camp, Knicks guard and noted sneakerhead J.R. Smith was spotted with the Nike LeBron X ‘Carbon’, a shoe that LeBron himself just recently wore over the weekend in a pre-season game in Shanghai. Typically, no other NBA player gets to rock a pair of LeBrons before the man himself has done so in an NBA Game, and even with the 9, only a small handful of players even wore the LeBrons deep into the season (Ty Lawson and George Hill are the two that come to mind). Considering the ‘Carbon’ has yet to release in the states (November 10th is the confirmed release date at this point), it’s interesting to see that J.R. sought after these Blackout LeBrons and made the decision to wear ’em at his own pleasure. Will the LeBron X be J.R.’s go-to choice for this season?
