    ;-) Watched every minute of the Finals game 1 and loved the performance that Lebron and the Heat put on. Can’t wait for Lebron to wear some more new PEs in the Finals.

    This is what makes the heat so dangerous. The big 3 is rolling and the benches are stepping up to shoulder some scoring load to the big 3. Adding those vicious, highlight reel dunks of James. Let’s go heat, win 3 more and haters will all fall unto their knees for their criticism they bashed into the team.

    Oh I forgot i thought James will be lacing up somesort of a special finals makeup colorway just like the soldier 3 and Soldier 1. But to my surprise he donned the ECF PS 8. Oh well might as well wait and maybe nike is setting up a special surprise at the right time. :mrgreen:
