LeBron’s big move to Miami in the off-season has become one of the most anticipated moves in recent basketball history. Teaming up with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and company in South Beach for the NBA season which kicks off today has gotten LeBron quite a bit of attention. Whether people think he made the right decision or not of course is just a matter of opinion, but no matter what people think, LeBron is doing what he does best and playing basketball. The latest Nike commercial below is a friendly reminder to all of his fans and naysayers, including a nice loving nudge at Charles Barkley’s “Not a Role Model” commercial from 1993. Basketball fans have probably heard how Barkley criticized LeBron James earlier this year for his choice to play for the Miami Heat this season. With all the world now seemingly excited to see LeBron fail, he has new motivation to be himself and lead the Heat for the freshly started NBA Season.
LeBron will be taking to the court this season in his latest signature model, the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII. Loaded with features like Flywire for strength and weight reduction, Air Max cushioning, and herringbone traction the LeBron VIII will uphold the footwear legacy of King James. Details that have become a part of the eight year old signature line return to give this new style a familiar flavor for LeBron’s fans. The lion on the tongue and LeBron’s signature on the heel are just the beginning of the details that let you know whose signature shoe you’re wearing and that their is no reason to question his dynasty.
