MATCHUP #1 – The first contest in the Nike LeBron tournament begins with two icons of the game – the “Cork” that celebrated LeBron’s first NBA Championship, and the “Sprite” which paid an homage to an earlier PE.
MATCHUP #2 – There are two intriguing stories in this duel – the LeBron 9 Elite was the shoe he wore to win his first NBA Title, while the LeBron 3 represented one of the four characters in the memorable “The LeBrons” ad campaign.
MATCHUP #3 – Nike launches the LeBron 11 with this awesome King’s Pride colorway. We pin it against the first-ever LeBron signature Dunkman release, seen here in LeBron 5 form.
MATCHUP #4 – Two big occasions are represented in this pivotal 4 vs. 5 match-up. The Air Zoom Generation was LeBron’s first-ever NBA Home game, while the LeBron 4 was a Birthday surprise for the budding superstar.
