Last week was a big week for Nike basketball athlete LeBron James, as he became the youngest player to total 20,000 career points and also reached the 5,000 career assists mark. It was also a notable week for him sneaker-wise, as he broke out two new PE colorways of the LeBron X. Both versions featured a similar look, with black uppers and accents in Miami Heat white and red with metallic silver Swooshes. The big difference between the two was his second new PE, which he wore against the Los Angeles Lakers, featured a matte black upper with a red tongue and laces, while the pair for his memorable night in Oakland had a more shiny finish and all black upper with white laces. Which pair do you prefer?
Another top story this week is Minnesota Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams, who broke out an original 1995 pair of the Air Flight One in-game against the LA Clippers. Not officially a Nike Basketball athlete, sneaker free-agent Williams continues to impress with his on-court kicks this year, and these OG Flight Ones might be his best shoe yet.
