Today, the NBA season tips off. And, it seems rather fitting that the first game be played between the proven “Big Three” of the Boston Celtics and the still unproven, but highly regarded “Big Three” of the new-look Miami Heat. But today also marks the release of the first Nike Air Max Lebron VIII we ever got a look at, which comes in black/sport red-gold. While the predominantly black/red color scheme of this ever-popular Nike Basketball Lebron silhouette will go well with a number of team uniforms, will Lebron finally be able to wear his first piece of NBA championship gold after this season? Will he be able to “sport gold” as this Nike release does? This, and a number of other storylines should make this NBA season a very interesting one to watch- all the while, of course, keeping an eye out for the several Nike Air Max Lebron VIII colorways we know are bound to come.
