Yesterday, LeBron James, 28, became the youngest player in NBA history to win four MVPs after receiving 120 of 121 first-place votes by league media members and analysts. The lone other first-place vote went to Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. It was the second time a player fell one vote short of an unanimous MVP selection, with Shaquille O’Neal also receiving 120 of 121 first-place votes in 1999-2000. “It’s probably a writer out of New York that didn’t give me the vote,” James said during Sunday’s award ceremony in Miami. “I know the history between the Heat and the Knicks. So I get it.” Continue reading for more photos from the ceremony. Via ESPN.

There’s an ongoing trend where shoes are getting more and more expensive with each year. This affects all shoes and is especially visible in the signature products market. Apparently the average retail price of a men’s sneakers increased 7% in 2012. Not so long ago LeBron James’ main signature shoes cost $160, now it’s $180 and we’re looking at $200 in a couple of months. Raising the prices raises another question of how does that influence the sales. Turns out life’s good for Nike and their LeBron brand. In 2012 LeBron sales reached a whooping $300 million while other lines reached $50 million for Kobe Bryant, $35 million for Kevin Durant, $25 million for Derrick Rose. The gap is very big, but just to put things in perspective the whole Jordan Brand is still on another level with $2 billion in 2012. As for the LeBrons it was all about the Nike LeBron X with a big increase over the LeBron 9. All info is provided courtesy of SportsOneSource analyst Matt Powell. Is LBJ X the most successful King James shoe? Share your point of view below.

You probably have already seen all of these shoes posted here on this website, but definitely not in one photo. Karen Civil tweeted a group shot of 8 Nike LeBron X colorways, which is a great preview of what to expect from Nike in the upcoming months. Technically, we’ve been introduced to 12 different styles, but the ones below have already been confirmed to release. There are three Nike+ styles (Blue Diamond, Fireberry, Pressure) and five regular (Silver/Orange, Floridians Away, Blackout, Jade, and Dunkman). It’s better not to think how much it would cost to get all 8. I did it for you: $1570 given the retail price and $200 Nike Plus option where possible. That’s only for 2012.

LeBron James spent the last day of his Nike China tour making the rounds at the Nike+ Festival of Sport 2012 in Shanghai. The four-day festival is aimed at encouraging sports participation in China and features a variety of sports and superstar athletes, drawing thousands of attendees. LeBron took a break from the courts to play beach volleyball with Chinese national team players Xue Cheng and Zhang Xi. He also played some ping pong and worked out at the Nike Training Club area. He then joined Amar’e Stoudemire, Rudy Gay and Paul George to judge the Nike+ Basketball Vertical Dunk Challenge. Other judges included Chinese men’s national team assistant coach Li Nan, American football superstar LaDainian Tomlinson and skateboarders Eric Koston, Omar Salazar, Stefan Janoski and Theotis Beasley. “The Festival of Sport is a great stage for kids to try out various sports,” LeBron said. “The passion here is amazing. I’m blessed to be a part of it.”

The 2012 King James Shooting Stars Classic took place in April, but today we get a look at the Nike Lebron 9 Shooting Stars AAU 2012 Player Exclusive. Similar to the previous versions, the Shooting Stars 9’s feature a Red, Black and White colorway. Obviously the theme is used very often on LeBron shoes, but every pair has its unique look. The Shooting Stars LeBron 9 shoes look very similar to one of LeBron James’ Miami Heat PEs from earlier this season. They won’t be coming out, but you still can design a similar make up using the Nike iD platform.

From July 6-9, the nation’s top 80 high school players and top 20 college players will convene in Las Vegas for the annual LeBron James Skills Academy. The event had been in James’ native Ohio but has relocated this summer as James and the U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team train in Las Vegas. Featuring many of the elite instructors in the game, the skills academy is hosted by King James for four days of intense skill development work and competition in front of hundreds of members of the media and scouts from every NBA team will be on hand. The attendants are usually hooked up with some exclusive gear from Nike Basketball and this year it’s no different. I’m not sure about the shoes, but other than that they got some exclusive t-shirts, polos, and an amazing duffel bag!
