Lebron 8 “Chicago Bulls” Unreleased Sample

The rivalry between the Miami Heat and the Chicago Bulls has blossomed into one of the most intense and watchable in the NBA, however if you think back to the summer of 2010 things could have worked out very different.

Before The Decision aired Lebron James was seriously considering joining the Bulls franchise, and Nike wanting to be prepared came up with a sample colorway of a charcoal Lebron 8 just in case.

Featuring grey suede panels set against a black background, the Bulls edition sported highlights in red, a clean white swoosh and red bottom.

Unfortunately this edition never saw a release, as we all know King James took his talents to South Beach. And the rest, as the saying goes, is history.
