LeBron James wears never-before-seen Nike shoes at the Drew League

The Drew League is the Mecca of summer hoops. NBA fans, fans and players make the annual pilgrimage to South Central Los Angeles for the pro-am tournament. This year, even “King James” made the trip for the first time in over a decade.

Even better for sneakerheads, LeBron James wore the unreleased Nike LeBron 20 in a pink colorway. James has worn the sneaker in private workouts and viral videos, but this is his first time participating in the new sneaker. Let’s just say the hoop shoe is fit for a king.

James teamed up with Chicago Bulls forward DeMar DeRozan. Two weeks ago, we discussed DeRozan’s storied Drew League history and his affinity for the Nike Kobe signature line.

There was heavy speculation that Kyrie Irving would play with James and DeRozan, but that never materialized. The good news is that there’s still plenty of time for other NBA players to get into the Drew League fast. Stay locked into FanNationKicks.com for the latest news, updates, and interviews.
