Since the Yankees are “in it again” as they say, winning their 27th World Series Championship, the first one in 9yrs and the first one won at home in 10yrs, Yankee fever is defiantly in the air all around the country. Today the New York Yankees took the Canyon of Heroes in NYC for a long overdue parade that many of us have been waiting 9yrs for.
When the parade was all said and done and Mayor Bloomberg handed out keys to the city Yankees such as Alex Rodriguez and CC Sabathia made their way down to the most famous arena in the world, Madison Square Garden to watch Lebron James take on the NY Knicks for his only game this year to be played in the Garden. Just for the record, Lebron laid down 33 points leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 100-91 victory over the New York Knicks.
For those not in the know Lebron James not only loves the city of New York but hes also a big time Yankees fan. In honor of his all-time favorite baseball team winning their 27th Championship Lebron and Nike had designed this special version of the Air Max Lebron VII White/Midnight Navy. On the toe of the right sneaker theres detailing of pinstripes, baseball stitches and the number “27” in gold. The toe of the left sneaker has the same pinstripes and baseball stitches, however the “27” has been swapped for “New York”. We highly doubt these will ever be released to the public and will only end up in the collection of Lebron James himself.
