When LeBron James puts on a blue NBA All-Star Game uniform for the ninth time in his career, he will be wearing possibly the most outrageous looking shoes of his career. And considering how many times James has been in the spotlight of the NBA’s biggest weekend, that’s saying a lot. While there are those who are doubting the look of the Nike LeBron 10 “Extraterrestrial,” it is expected to be a quick seller when it hits store shelves this week despite the deluge of All-Star game related kicks dropping as well.
With that in mind, let us take a look back at LeBron’s history of kicks during NBA All-Star Weekend. Ever since his rookie season, James has always been involved in the festivities in one way or another, whether it was as a rookie in the Nike Zoom Generation “Wheat” during the 2004 Rookie Challenge or as a Saturday Night participant in the 2007 Playstation Skills Challenge in a golden Nike LeBron 4. Check out the slides below for some rarely-seen pictures of LeBron and his kicks through the years…
