USA Basketball Team played 4 exhibition games as a part of their preparations for the upcoming Summer Games. LeBron James, who missed the first match-up due to an ankle injury, wore a special Zoom Soldier II Olympic Edition in all the games he played in. The Nike Zoom Soldier II Supreme, which was released in Asia in late July, is a part of the “Friendlies” pack assembled for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in honor of the Friendly games that the USA Basketball Squad is playing in China as a warm up before the real action. Nike has released three special sneakers for three of the top players – LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony. Similar to the “United We Rise” pack, the “Friendlies” pack consist of Nike Zoom Soldier II, Nike Hyperdunk and Jordan Olympia… Nike’s most recent signature sneakers. LeBron’s special make up features a lasered lion on the heel tab and Chinese characters, which translate into “Land” and LeBron’s jersey number #6. All this comes with a special box presenting the same lion graphic.
