Nike has plans to raise the price of their shoe and clothing prices by 5 to 10 percent due to cost of labor and cotton going up.
The release of LeBron’s latest shoe is going to test Nike’s new theory this fall, when they debut their priciest sneaker to date: the $315 LeBron James basketball shoe that includes its own electronics.
The coming $315 LeBron X Nike Plus is expected to come embedded with motion sensors that can measure how high players jump.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are the 2012 NBA champions. LeBron James has answered many of his critics by winning a ring and earning the NBA Finals MVP award in the process. He was brilliant throughout the entire 2012 NBA playoffs, leading the Miami Heat to their second NBA title in franchise history.
Congrats to Lebron James & the Miami Heat organization.
MIAMI (AP) — A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Miami’s LeBron James will be announced Saturday as the NBA’s MVP, the third time he’s won the award in the past four seasons.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the results have not been released. James is expected to be presented with the trophy Sunday by Commissioner David Stern before Miami hosts Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Indiana.
James will become the eighth player to win the award at least three times, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Moses Malone.
He’ll be the first to win as a member of the Heat. James’ previous MVP awards in 2009 and 2010 came when he played for Cleveland.
Miami Heat superstar Lebron James opens new concept store by the name of UNKNWN in Miami’s Aventura Mall. The store is co-owned by Lebron James, along with Frankie Walker and a few other great minds. The Grand Opening was a private event with a few hundred people. Everyone was able to try out products such as Beats by Dre, along with complimentary Grey Goose all night. UNKNWN has a nice boutique style and its located on the first floor of Aventura Mall, next to Sears.
Lebron obviously forgot to wear his headband at the Grand Opening. R.I.P. to Lebron’s hairline. #GoneButNotForgotten

While your average NBA player relies on a league check, super-ballers like LeBron James and about 10 other players will be earning at least that much in off-court endorsements, whether they play or not.
According to Forbes, James is at the top of that list — he’ll receive around $33 million in endorsements for the season — roughly twice his NBA salary.
Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will also bring in the massive endorsement bucks GWOP earning about $28 million in off-court endorsements.
James’ teammate D-Wade will also receive about $12 million in endorsements.
Endorsements come from phone companies, energy drinks, sneakers and more.
