Well, that didn't go as planned.
In what LeBron called "one of the biggest sporting events ever", King James made his return to Cleveland last night. Unfortunately for the LeBron and his new found super team, the homecoming was spoiled as the Knicks beat the Cavaliers, 95-90. LeBron struggled from the field shooting just 5-15 for 17 points and turned the ball over a very uncharacteristic 8 times. Maybe it was the nerves from the night, but LeBron didn't seem comfortable, and was clearly still working out the kinks with his new teammates. Despite his sub-par performance, King James killed it in the sneaker department as he debuted two new PE's of the Nike LeBron 12. Matching the Cavs alternate uniform, LeBron laced up a blue and yellow mockup for the first half, then switched it up at half into a blue and red PE to finish the game.
Hopefully for Nike's sake, LeBron won't let this tough game affect his sneaker choice and shelf the LeBron 12 for his secondary Solider line like he did last year. Only time will tell, but we fully expect LeBron and the Cavs to turn things around quickly. Check out both PE's in detail below, and keep it locked for all future news on the LeBron 12.
