What a year LeBron James is having, 2012 NBA MVP, Finals Champion, Finals MVP, Olympic Gold Medal and his Nike LeBron 9 Elite “South Beach” has been his biggest selling shoe to-date. Before he became King James, we was known as “Mr. Basketball” during his Ohio high-school days. While getting drafted as the number one pick by Cleveland Cavilers, Nike made a special House of Hoops exclusive release commemorating LeBron James with the Nike Zoom LeBron 5 “Mr. Basketball”. This release was limited to only 86 pairs worldwide, that made their debut in February 2008. They featured a newsprint covering the entire upper that came with a special LeBron James bag and mimi locker.
