This weekend, the PK80 basketball tournament celebrating Phil Knight's 80th birthday is being held in Portland, Oregon. Each of the 16 teams participating in the tournament will be wearing special pairs of Nike signatures including the KD 10, PG 1, Kyrie 3, and more.
Ohio State, a team LeBron James publicly supports, got exclusive pairs of LeBron 15s directly from the man himself.
Revealed by the official Twitter account of the Ohio State basketball team, the Buckeyes will be wearing black pairs of LeBron's current signature for the tournament. The pairs also sport a small copper Swoosh embroidered on the lateral toe area that is not present on retail versions of the model.
This black and copper color scheme is seen across all of the colorways created by Nike for the PK80 tournament, and is inspired by Knight's signature all-black outfits and shades.
Other teams participating include Arkansas, Butler, Connecticut, Duke, DePaul, Florida, Gonzaga, Michigan State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Portland, Portland State, Stanford, and Texas. The PK80 tournament concludes on Sunday, Nov. 26.
