Last night, we were all witnesses.
LeBron James, with just moments on the clock, following a monstrous ‘block’ on a Victor Oladipo’s lay-up attempt, went all Michael Jordan over Craig Elho for an all-time Game 5 closer. James, though, did it with a three-point heave whereas Jordan pulled up gracefully from the top of the key.
Witnessing James’ greatest has always been of high importance since the start of his hallmark career. Since those Witness banners hung from buildings in Cleveland. Since that Nike Witness commercial aired. And, since those “Witness” Soldiers released.
Taking its inspiration straight from the soon-to-be-released Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight” — which odes James heroics in another playoff moment more than a decade ago — the Nike LeBron Soldier 12 “Witness,” if only indirectly, represents continued awareness of LeBron’s greatness. They stand as a tribute to sustained greatness and that the show is still ongoing. Those curtains haven’t yet come down. 15 years in and we are still witnessing one of the best players to ever pick up a basketball.
The Nike LeBron Soldier 12 “Witness” is set to release on May 5 for $130. Expect the aforementioned Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 1 “25 Straight” to release on May 31.
