Even in high school, it wasn’t the athleticism or the dunks that made LeBron James stand out from the rest of the wannabes. It was his unique skill-set, most importantly his passing and court vision. That translated immediately to the NBA where James started as a 6-8 point guard in his very first game in Cleveland. Over the years, LeBron has made plays for just about everyone, turning stars like Dwyane Wade into a three-time champion and role players like Mario Chalmers into serviceable starting players.
This season, that quality has become even more pronounced. Cleveland’s starting point guard, Kyrie Irving, is much more comfortable as a scorer, meaning James has had to pick up even more of the slack when it comes to running the offense. He’s done it, too, averaging a career-high 7.4 assists per game. That number has him ranked eighth in the NBA, and of the players in front of him, none are taller than 6-4.
So it makes perfect sense that the next colorway for the Nike LeBron 12 has been dubbed “Court Vision.” Featuring red accents and a white swoosh, as well as an icy outsole, the Nike sneaker comes with black tones all over the upper, including wood grain touches on the Hyperposite material. Available today at Champs Sports, this is a must-cop for ‘Bron fans…and even sneakerheads in general. When was the last time you saw a sneaker collector turn down a “bred” colorway? Yeah, it almost never happens.
Check out some images now and cop before it’s too late.
