LeBron James is Nike’s ?Employee of the Year? thanks to his latest individual accomplishment. Today, LeBron James became the eighth player in NBA history to win the MVP award three times. To celebrate this awesome feat for LeBron, Nike crafted a special edition “MVP” Nike LeBron 9 that features a Miami Heat-esque color scheme. A gradient effect, fading from red to black, smothers the majority of the upper, while yellow accents, such as an MVP logo on the heel and trophies graphics printed on the sockliner, provide nice contrast. Nike has stated that the Nike LeBron 9 “MVP” was specifically made for King James, but an extremely limited amount will be available next month.
