LeBron James troll fans for just wearing Michael Jordan sneakers


Whether it’s the NBA or the WNBA, athletes have their own unique style when it comes to entering arenas. While Liz Cambage might choose to walk in with a coffee in hand, Devin Booker can show up in a gentleman’s costume. But what if someone as huge as LeBron James was promoting MJ when he arrived?

LeBron James wears shoes from his rival brand

Ahead of the final 2021 preseason game against the Kings, LeBron James turned the heat on his arrival. At the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, LBJ raised his eyebrows when he stepped in Air Jordan 2s.

The iconic second edition Jordan brand sneakers were first released in November 1986. A Bruce Killgore / Peter Moore design, the shoes came out in a white / red colourway, perhaps as an ode to the jersey design of the Bulls at the time. So when LeBron, after almost 25 years (Silver Jubilee) of these pairs, wore them, fans couldn’t hold back their excitement.

Enjoy some of the more interesting comments from fans who mostly poked fun at Bron for supporting an MJ line.

During an NBA promotional event at the Paris Game 2020, MJ had agreed how he had immense respect for the 4x champion. He had expressed, “He’s an incredible player. He’s one of the best players in the world, if not the best.

It proved just how less these two stars care about the narrative that pits them against each other as competitors. So even with the Jordan brand pulling better deals than the LeBron signature line, that doesn’t stop the latter from wearing a historic pair of sneakers. And when that helped Bron score his 2021 preseason high of 30 points, it’s not even that bad.
