Fans of the Nike LeBron 11 can rejoice because the long national nightmare is over for LeBron James has finally worn his latest signature shoes again. Whatever the reasons there were for James to not be wearing the Nike LeBron 11 (we’ve come up with reasons both potentially valid and absolutely absurd that you should read up on), it was apparently such an event that Dwyane Wade did cartwheels in celebration. wade1 wade2

Ok, maybe Wade wasn’t doing cartwheels of joy for LeBron’s kicks. Actually, the bigger mystery to me is who threw that towel at Wade mid-wheel. Money is on Chris Bosh because it’s Chris Bosh and Chris Bosh would do something like that for giggles.

As for the rest of the night in kicks, Gerald Wallace and Ray Allen rock PE versions of the Air Jordan XX8, Paul George continues to make his case for the MVP award in an iD pair of the Nike Kobe 8 while the NBA’s past and present (Tim Duncan in the adidas CrazyQuick) met the league’s future (Anthony Davis in the Nike Air Max Hyperposite PE).
