Back from his vacation injury rehab, LeBron James returned to the lineup last night when his Cleveland Cavaliers visited the Phoenix Suns.

Perhaps a salute to the National Champion Ohio State Buckeyes, James went to work in a red and black Nike LeBron 12 Player Exclusive, enhanced by metallic silver branding on the tongue and forefoot.

James went for 33 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists in his return, but the Cavs fell below .500 with a 107-100 loss to the Phoenix Suns.
