While the real shots will be taken during tonight’s game, LeBron threw a quick shot at Kobe on the eve of tonight’s showdown. When asked why his Nike Air Max LeBron 8 sells for $30 more than the Nike Zoom Kobe VI, LeBron answered, “Yeah, it’s a better shoe.” When asked why it was a better shoe, LeBron answered, “Because it is,” James said of his shoe, which is red with green laces while Bryant’s is green with red laces. “Because it’s LeBron’s shoe. It’s got my name on it. I take pride in my shoes every year and I’ve always taken pride in having the best shoe. So they’re going to cost a little more if you decide to wear them.”
So LeBron thinks he has the better kick. Does he? Will he have the better game? We’ll all find out tonight.
