Ahead of Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals in Cleveland, LeBron James decided to pull out a rare PE from his signature line for practice at Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday. That sample is none other than the "Stewie Griffin" LeBron 6 inspired by the foul-mouthed baby from the hit animated series Family Guy.
This pair of one of King James' earlier signatures transforms the bulky high-top into a colorful interpretation of Stewie's appearance. Yellow and red make up a majority of the upper to represent his signature overalls, while hits of blue and white are also used throughout. Bold outlines and shadowing effects give the pair a cartoonish vibe as well that makes them look like they were illustrated.
Over the years, James has been known to break out some throwbacks in practice, but this is certainly one of the best in recent memory. Time will tell if it can provide some good luck for King James and the Cleveland Cavaliers as they try to avoid going down three game to none against the Golden State Warriors this Wednesday.
