It’s hard to believe that a coasting LeBron put up his 13th straight season of 25 points per game while averaging a career high in assists. He’ll probably finish fourth in NBA MVP voting, too, and that’s more a comment on how crazy this season has been than a testament to voting fatigue. Since sitting the last two games of the regular season, LBJ has kept busy. He’s leaked new Kendrick songs, and even broke out his new Nike LeBron Soldier 11 for the postseason. The model features four straps, a laceless, slip-on construction that might be just as hard to get on as the previous Soldier 10, and what appears to be Zoom Air with hints of that hexagonal Air support system carried over from his signature line. He broke out a new LeBron Soldier 11 Triple Black in practice thinking nobody would notice, confirming that the strapped up laceless design is indeed the next in the long line of Soldier models.
