LeBron James Says If You Wear His Shoes Against Him, Prepare to Get Beat

LeBron James' signature Nike shoes are among the most popular sneakers on the market, but it's not wise to wear the shoes while going up against the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar.

When that happens, James believes he has an edge before the game even begins.

During an interview with GQ, the four-time NBA MVP revealed that he has the mental edge over his opponent when that player is wearing LeBrons.

Here's a quick look at what James had to say on the matter (via Brendan Dunne of Sole Collector):

When I was a kid and I used to see guys wear MJ's shoes when they played against MJ I'm like, "Oh MJ got a little mental edge over those guys."

If you just a guy that's just like, you actually just go to Foot Locker or somewhere, you just get a pair of 'Brons and you want to wear 'em on a Tuesday night vs. me? I'ma bust your ass. Straight up.

James' talent and size give him an advantage over nearly anyone he walks on the court against. If he gains the mental edge as well, it's going to be a long night for the opposition.
