Back in 2010, all of New York City was praying that LeBron James' "The Decision" would land him in the Big Apple. And it wasn't just wishful thinking. LeBron loves NYC. He's a Yankees fan, and he loves showing out at Madison Square Garden. LeBron wound up going in a different direction, but his connection with MSG and New York remains strong.

Since his rookie season in 2003, LeBron has been balling at Madison Square Garden, and he's made it a habit of breaking out special sneakers for the NYC hardwood. LeBron and the Heat square off against the Knicks at the World's Most Famous Arena this evening, and to commemorate the event, here's  A Complete History of LeBron James' Sneakers Worn at Madison Square Garden.
