After James tweeted that he hoped everyone was "able to cop" the new LeBron 7s, Davis offered the following response:
The Nike LeBron 7 "Lakers Media Day" became available Saturday, and it was a highly sought-after shoe because of the color scheme.
While James wore different versions of the Nike LeBron 7 during the 2019-20 season, the "Lakers Media Day" version featured the signature purple, gold and white color palette of the Lakers.
Although the 2019-20 season remains suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic, LeBron's second season in L.A. was a massive success before play was halted.
James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers own the best record in the Western Conference at 49-14, and they will end the team's six-year playoff drought should the season continue.
Even at 35 years of age, LeBron was playing at an MVP-caliber level with averages of 25.7 points, 10.6 assists and 7.9 rebounds per game.
If the 2019-20 season picks back up and LeBron manages to take the Lakers on a deep run that perhaps even ends in a championship, then it will only serve to increase interest in the LeBron 7 "Lakers Media Day" kicks even more.
