NBA Sneaker Watch: LeBron James' New PE Not Enough
With the March Madness Tournament coming to an end, our athlete sneaker watch is diverted back to the NBA which will begin its 2012 Playoffs on the 28th of this month. Teams are jostling for the eighth and final spots in their respective conferences for a chance to make it to the postseason. Last night saw a number of hard fought games two of the best teams in the league fell in defeat.
First off, LeBron James, his new Player Exclusive, and the Miami Heat could not fend off the Memphis Grizzlies who have been one of the surprises of the league. James broke out a new Heat PE coming in a white/red/black colorway. Another team looking to make a championship run in the LA Lakers took a loss as Kobe Bryant laced up the Home edition of the Zoom Kobe VII in a losing effort to the Rockets.

Around the rest of the league, Warriors guard Nate Robinson broke out the all black CB 34s while his former teammate, Bucks guard Monta Ellis laced up the Rising Sun Air Jordan 12s. Lastly, Girzzlies newly acquired guard Gilbert Arenas balled in the Stealth Air Jordan 10s. Who had the best sneaker in the NBA last night? Let us know.
