What is the first thing you think about when you hear gravity-defying basketball plays? My answer: Space Jam. It’s a no-brainer.
Like Michael Jordan and the rest of his Looney Tunes squad, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant have had their fair share of jaw-dropping, gravity-defying moments. Between the three All-Stars, you have a full highlight reel of sick dunks, game-winners, and high-flying blocks. The three future Hall of Famers will go down as helping grow the sport of basketball with their tremendous play. All three were put on this earth to score, win, and dominate during this era.
If you didn’t know, Kobe Bryant won the Slam Dunk Contest in the 1996-1997 season, his rookie year. Ever since then his game has come full circle with a handful of championship rings. LeBron James has been nicknamed the King ever since he was anointed as the next big thing as an underclassman in high school. And, last but not least, Kevin Durant, the reigning MVP, has been a marketing phenom since being drafted second overall in 2007. Each baller has a unique playing style that is vital to keeping us, the fans, entertained.
Not only are they great at basketball, but they are all extremely passionate about growing their own brands. It’s tough to watch an entire playoff game without seeing one of their faces in a commercial. Luckily for us, they are all under one sneaker umbrella: Nike.
Very soon, Champs Sports will be dropping more Elite heat from Nike Basketball. The packs will include the LeBron 12, KD7, and Kobe X, right in time for your summer basketball league. Hey, if your game isn’t on point at least your sneaker rotation will be.
