Nike jumps the gun on LeBron 2X champ kicks


New photos on a pair of Nike LeBron X Lows that pay homage to LeBron winning his second NBA championship have emerged recently. Only problem is, LeBron is still just a one-time champ and the Spurs are just 48 minutes of good basketball away from winning this year's championship.

Looks like the old "counting your chickens before the hatch" saying has bit Nike in the rear with these pics, which obviously weren't supposed to be released just yet. The kicks feature "2-time champion" and "11-12 12-13" printed on the insoles of the sneakers. They follow up these "What the MVP" sneakers, which LeBron wore to celebrate being named this season's Most Valuable Player.

Another crazy fact about this year's Finals is that the Spurs have been killing the Heat while Danny Green and Manu Ginobili have both been wearing LeBron's sneakers. That's right, Green, who was LeBron's teammate in Cleveland, has been wearing the the Nike Zoom Soldier VI. Ginobili has been wearing the LeBron Xs.
