Pic: San Antonio Spurs fans won’t be happy with the message on LeBron’s new shoes

Some people will like the new LeBron Nike shoe and others won’t, but San Antonio Spurs fans will be entitled to be a little mad at the inscription included on The King’s new footwear.

LeBron James will be part of a Miami Heat side looking to prevent the Spurs from clinching an NBA title in Miami tonight after they took a 3-2 lead in the best of seven series on Sunday.

A win tonight would also provide LeBron and his Heat teammates with the opportunity to win their second title on the trot with a victory in Game Seven, but if a message inscribed on LeBron’s new footwear is to be believed, Miami winning both games and a second NBA title is merely a formality.

Pictures (which may or may not be 100 per cent genuine) of LeBron’s new LeBron X shoe surfaced online today and appear to carry the message ‘2-time Champion, despite the fact that, well, there’s an awful lot to do before LeBron can refer to himself using that title.

But hey, let’s not go too hard on whomever might have made the somewhat premature error; it’s not as if Nike have ever made this mistake before, right? Right?
