If superstition is what was keeping LeBron James out of the Nike LeBron 12 Elite, it's probably also what has him back in it.

For Game 2 of the NBA Finals, LeBron James is giving his Elite sneaker another chance, wearing a black and red PE colorway. It's the first time he's worn the shoe in a game since the first round.

Down another starter, James could use a little luck, and maybe his new kicks are doing the job. He has 20 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists at halftime.
