What is LeBron James getting at with all these wears of older sneakers from his signature line as of late? The lifetime Nike athlete is at it again, this time breaking out his LeBron 3 during today's practice for Wednesday's Game 3 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

One way to read his wears of older pairs, which have also included the LeBron 4 and the Air Zoom Generation, is as hints at Nike LeBron retros that will probably release some day in the future.

James actually brought this same shoe out last year for a regular season game.

While he's wearing retros for practice, it's highly unlikely that James will be in anything other than his current signature model come game time.
