How “Kobe and LeBron” Stole Christmas – Both Stars To Debut New Signature Shoes During Christmas Day Game

I guess it’s safe to say that all is set for the NBA’s marquee match-up on Christmas Day between the reigning NBA Champs Los Angeles Lakers and the under achieving team that had high hopes and dreams in dethroning them, the Miami Heat.

Where will it be: Staples Center – Los Angeles, California

When will it be: Saturday December 25, 2010

What time will it be: 2:00PM (PST)

Where can it be seen: ABC (Local Channel 24 – Memphis, TN)

The rosters are set (maybe not for the Miami Heat), all the tickets are SOLD OUT and have been for a couple of months now, and we now know what will be worn on the feet of the big games two biggest stars, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

Both will be dawning their signature Nike kicks with a special holiday touch. Kobe will be in the Nike Zoom Kobe VI (6) “Christmas” which has been given a special “pea-green” color mockup. Reports released yesterday note Thoedor Geisel’s fable “The Grinch That Stole Christmas” as the inspiration behind the shoes design, but other sources question if its the Grinch or Kobe’s facination with the great martial artist Bruce Lee and his character Kato in “The Green Hornet”.

LeBron on the other hand will be sporting a production model of his Nike LeBron 8 V2 nicknamed “Christmas” which will be released the following day December 26, 2010.  With a majority red upper, white sole, and green laces LBJ will be displaying his Christmas Spirit for the world to see. No word on where these will be available on release date but they will carry a fairly reasonable price tag of $160.00 + tax.

I guess the only question now is whether or not LeBron’s coach, Erik Spoelstra will be on the sideline for the Miami Heat on Christmas Day or will Pat Riley make his way from the front office to take over the team he built this summer.
