Nike LeBron 8 V2 Graffiti

words // Brandon Richard

The NBA may currently be locked out, but the spirit of the game of basketball has carried on strong throughout the summer with various Pro-Am League exhibitions featuring NBA superstars. In the latest match-up, Kevin Durant led the Goodman League All-Stars in a much talked about game against the Melo All-Stars, comprised of players like Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and LeBron James. That contest took place tonight at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland.

For the game, LeBron James broke out a never-before-seen colorway of the Nike LeBron 8 V/2. The upper of the shoe featured a graffiti-style print reminiscent of the New York City LeBron IV.

Kevin Durant stole the show in the game, dropping 59 points on the night, but it was the Melo League All-Stars that pulled out a 149-141 victory. LeBron recorded an unofficial 38 points for his team.

Let us know what you think about the "Graffiti" LeBron 8 V/2 below.
