While the viscious forearm to the throat may have put a damper on his night, LeBron James was still able to take care of business at home and jump out to a 2-0 series lead against the Charlotte Bobcats earlier this week.

After wearing a white-based player exclusive colorway of his new LeBron 11 Elite, James broke out a new black edition of his signature sneaker for the second game of the first round matchup. With a black hyperfuse upper, grey TPU support overlays and high-gloss metallic red additional support panels, this might be the best colorway yet for the model.

What do you think? Would you like for this colorway to release, or are you looking forward to additional versions to come throughout the Heat's expectedly lengthy playoff run this spring?
