LeBron James did not play in the 2004 NBA All-Star Game, but his kicks game was already serious back then. For that short time he was “The Unchosen One.” LeBron James was not among the reserves for the All-Star Game. James was unable to beat out Eastern Conference guards Paul Pierce, Michael Redd, Baron Davis and Jason Kidd. He still could make the team if one of the East All-Stars was injured, but he didn’t want to be named a replacement. “I wasn’t part of the ones that they picked at first, so I wouldn’t even like to be a part of the team if somebody didn’t go,” James said. “I’m an only child and I never want to be picked second. I don’t come second.” “Not making it just tells me I’ve got to work harder,” said James, “I’ve been earning a lot of things this year — earning the respect of players, the respect of refs. That’s another thing I’ve got to earn, to be a part of the elite group.” Too bad he didn’t make the cut, cause Nike instead of releasing the LeBron James x All-Star Game pack had to get rid of it using the outlets, but of course the shoes didn’t stay there long. Back to the shoes… we profiled his Special Make Up for the Los Angeles All-Star Game several times already (here and here). However, as usual, there are various implementations of the Air Zoom Generation ASG PE. If you’ve been up-to-date with the AZG listing you’ve seen at least 3 of them – ASG White Sample, ASG Grey Sample, and ASG ‘LA’ PE. This week, courtesy of PO2345 we’ve learned there’s another shoe commemorating LeBron James not playing in the 2004 All-Star. The fourth version of this already rare Player Exclusive, which makes this one ‘ultra rare’, is the same as the ‘regular’ PE, but has an additional #23 stitched on the back – LeBron’s AZG PE emblem. Don’t forget that apart from the ASG kicks there’s a special sneaker that actually did taste the Hardwood during the All-Star Weekend – the Wheat edition. Bron rocked the Timberland-inspired-Gold-colored AZG in the Rookie Challenge cause that wouldn’t be legal during the regular season. There are at least two versions of that one as well – King James’ PE and the public edition.
