KICKS: Who were the toughest guys you went against? ROSE: Everybody. Oh, growing up? You’re talking like in high school? AAU? Something like that? KICKS: Yeah, high school, AAU, even playground. ROSE: Who was the toughest player? Man, the only person that really served me, like really really served me, I don’t even know this boy name. I just know he go to Montana. He probably a senior this year, he probably a senior, and I was young and playin’ up, that’s what you’re supposed to do. It was some boy, he was from Minnesota, he played for a Minnesota team, they came into Chicago, and I was playin’ up. And he served me, I can’t lie. KICKS: He was another point guard? ROSE: He had to be a two guard the way he was shootin’. I wanted to check the best player on the floor, so I was checkin’ him. It seemed he wasn’t missin’. He had to have 30-somethin’, 40 points or something like that. I don’t know his name, but I know he goes to Montana. LINK

A second chicago shoe by LeBron. This kid might as well just sign up and rock the red and black..regardless, here's what the post says: As a gift, this pair of Nike Air Max LeBron 7 customized by a Chicago artist named Jeff Zimmerman was presented to Lebron James at Nike’s grassroots activities in Chicago. Zimmermann has achieved national and international recognition for his large-scale murals featuring painted images of contemporary pop-culture and sensitively rendered portraits. His pop-culture references range from innocuous consumer products such as beer cans, hard candy rings, and high heeled shoes, to more symbolically-charged images like portraits of political figures. The artist’s background as a graphic designer explains his shrewd use of flashy and graphic forms. Zimmerman was inspired by James’ achievements on and off the court. He wanted the shoes to express LeBron’s positive energy through color and motion. To represent Chicago, Zimmerman wove in the Chicago city flag. For a bit of levity, Zimmerman added "a Chicago-style hot dog symbolizing the fun that amateurs have trying to be a ‘hot dog’ on the court." He included a worn-in Nike swoosh to represent the idea that "experience, plus practice and hard work, make us who we are." Related: Clash of the Kicks
