We're still a long, long way away from LeBron James getting the full Michael Jordan treatment from Nike, with his own brand and everything.

“It’s retro time. It’s time. I can’t be more proud at this point in my life, at this point in my career, to know that it all started right here. It started from the bottom. This is where it started. For an 18-year-old kid to be able to see his name, his likeness on his first signature shoe, this is an emotional feeling, and it’s exciting.”
