Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight” Odes LeBron James’ Memorable 2007 ECF Moment

Nowadays there’s a lot of chatter surrounding LeBron James as the best basketball player of all time. An argument that only ruffles feathers when Michael Jordan enters the conversation. James is an unrivaled all-time great with the championships, MVPs and stats to reinforce said claim. But back in the late 2000s he was simply great, not yet an all-time great.

It would be the moments to come that would lift James into the upper echelon of hoops hierarchy. And while countless plays and games come to mind, his performance in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals stand out among the most remarkable.

In a close game against a veteran Detroit Pistons team, James put the Cavs on his back and rattled off 25 straight points to lift his team to a thrilling 109-107 victory. LeBron finished the game just shy of a 50-piece with 48 points, shooting 11 for 13 on those final 25 points.

Nike’s “Championship Think 16” Pack honors this historic moment in Bron history with not only a special edition “25 Straight” release, but the very first retro of his Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1. The colorway closely replicates the pair James wore on that faithful day in 2007 with a few special notations to commemorate the release.

The Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight” is set to drop on May 31 which, fittingly, marks the anniversary of that incredible Game 5.

Upcoming Nike Kyrie 4 is Inspired by His Memorable Finals Performance

The Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 NBA Finals comeback is one of legend. No team has ever emerged victorious in a Finals facing a 3-1 deficit. The Cavs did due in large part of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Irving, now a Celtic, had a performance in that Finals that made him the superstar he is today.

His 41-point outburst in Game 5 of the series helped the Cavs get over the hump, giving them the confidence and poise they needed to close out the Golden State Warriors. This upcoming Nike Kyrie 4 honors that towering performance in black and crimson shades with what appears to be bricks at the heel, symbolizing Irving’s ability to put missed shots behind him and thrive beyond the shots that didn’t fall.

Take a closer look at the Nike Kyrie 4 “41 for the Ages” on April 14.
