With one dribble and two quick steps clearing him for liftoff, LeBron leapt into a familiar pose… legs splayed, ball cocked behind his head, that menacing glare at eye level with the rim. The crowd exploded with delight and the first of many awe inspiring dunks in LeBron’s career finished as quickly as it started. A silhouette of that first flight has been laid over an electric green and grey colorway on LeBron’s kicks every year since, representing the unfathomable power and grace of such an iconic athlete. Of course his game involves much more than dunking, but those brief spasms of brilliance are undeniably captivating. So there it remains, captured in the storytelling panel of the LeBron X “Green Diamond” colorway. A subtle, yet striking reminder that while there will always be more to come, we’ll never forget the first. The Dunkman X will be available tomorrow at major Nike Basketball retailers.
