In his first official game back in a Cavaliers uniform, LeBron James paced Cleveland in a 107-80 victory over Euroleague champions Maccabi Tel Aviv. James recorded 12 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists in 19 minutes of action in front of the home crowd.

After a season in which we didn't see much of the Nike LeBron 11 on-foot, James played this preseason contest in the 'Heart of a Lion' LeBron 12. Inspired by the courage and physicality shown by James on the floor, the shoe was originally set to release on October 30, but will presumably be pushed back following Nike's announcement of a delay last week.

Look on for a few game shots and keep checking Sole Collector for a new 'Heart of a Lion' release date.
