After opting for the "Bright Crimson" LeBron 15 that will be making its way to retail for Game 2 against the Indiana Pacers, LeBron James decided to lace up something more exclusive for Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Playoffs. 

For this pair, Nike opted to pay homage to his first signature model, the Air Zoom Generation, once again. However, this time it dons an upper inspired by the "First Game" colorway worn by James during his first home game back in 2003. The top half of the upper uses a white Battleknit, while the bottom half is done in the Cavaliers' wine hue to mimic the upper of the Air Zoom Generation. A metallic blue counter is made to resemble the AZG's heel piece, while a white Swoosh outlined in blue is added to the side panel as well. 

King James also laced up a pair of AZG-themed LeBron 15s made to look like the "Black/White" pair he actually wore in his first career game earlier this year during the regular season. Like his Nike Shox BB4-inspired pair from Game 1 and many other #LeBronWatch pairs before it, don't expect this one to hit retail any time soon.
