Tonight at 9 PM ET on ABC, LeBron James and the Miami Heat will try desperately to keep their hopes of a second-consecutive NBA Championship alive with a win over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The Spurs currently hold a 3-2 lead over the defending champs and their so-called “Big 3”, and in case you weren’t already over there talking trash, you can join our friends at the Smoking Section for their Game 6 live discussion.
As for tonight’s game and the Heat’s chances, Miami is 6-0 in these playoffs following a loss while the Spurs are 14-2 all-time in series-clinching games on the road. Therefore, this should be one that will fly in the face of statistics one way or another. But there are some people out there who actually believe that the NBA is fixed and the Heat are going to win tonight and Game 7. And Nike may have provided them with a smoking gun.
Photos of Nike’s new LeBron X Low Floral shoes hit the web today – specifically Kix and the City – and I’m sure that sneakerheads everywhere started salivating over the thought of spending a few hundred dollars on the flowery footwear. But it’s what is printed on the inside of each shoe that makes them so peculiar…
Obviously, this is just a case of Nike producing something in advance, and if James doesn’t become a 2-time NBA champ after these Finals, whomever received this pair will be holding onto a collector’s item. But if the Heat do pull off the come-from-behind win to take the series, hoo boy, there will be some excited conspiracy theorists out there.
