If you thought that the arrival of the LeBron XI Elite would eliminate any mid-game shoe changes from LeBron James, you thought wrong. James made the early switch from a new home colorway of the XI Elite back to his trusted Zoom Soldier VII PE after the first quarter of Miami's 96-95 loss against the Brooklyn Nets. The former MVP had a so-so performance with just 19 points on 6 for 13 shooting while collecting 5 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 steals. Will LeBron ever get comfortable with any version of the XI? Only time will tell.
