Nike Set to Drop the “King James” LeBron 16 on Opening Night
Fit for the King.
If you’ve watched enough basketball, you’d understand incredible versatility that LeBron James possesses. His ability to play all five positions on the court in one game is something we’ve never seen before — and that’s something that should be celebrated.
And it is, with Nike’s first 5 colorways for the King celebrating his skills at every position. This pair is set to represent his position at the three, where he truly is the King.
On October 18th this year, LeBron starts the fourth chapter of his NBA career, where he will lace up these gems for the Los Angeles Lakers in Portland.

As of yet, there’s no official release date confirmed, but we may be looking at the very first “LeBron Watch” release of 2019, with this being tipped to release on the Lakers’ opening night.
