After faltering in the 2004 Olympics, the 2006 FIBA qualifying tournament was big for USA Basketball. Trying to take the first step on the road to redemption, the Americans again fell short in the World Championship, held in Japan, taking home the bronze medal. Regardless of the outcome, Nike laced LeBron James with all of the tools needed to succeed. Wearing the Nike LeBron 20-5-5 and original cut of the Nike LeBron III on court, this Nike Zoom LeBron III Low “FIBA” PE flew under the radar. Now, the rare sample for King James has been spotted for auction in its red, white and blue colorway, finished off with the USMNT logo on the heels and “Japan 2006” stitched on the back of the tongues.
