NOT all Los Angeles natives were pleased by the move of LeBron James to LA in the offseason as they aired their displeasure by vandalizing murals in the city that depicted the NBA superstar in a Lakers uniform.
Hopefully, Filipinos will not be as critical when they step onto the Nike LeBron Hypercourt in BGC, Taguig that got a major facelift recently.
From its 2017 unveiling that portrayed LeBron in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ wine-and-gold jersey, the two courts had a makeover that changed James’ kit to the Lakers’ purple and gold.
The twin courts still feature James’ range of emotions – one court showing an aerial motion attempting a slam, and the other a bigger version seeing him scream – both artworks seeing him wear the Lakers’ Icon Edition jersey – the one James wore in his Lakers debut last October.
The unveiling is quite timely since James has finally returned to action after missing 17 games due to a groin injury, proving he hardly skipped a beat by flirting with a triple-double in the Lakers’ overtime win over the Clippers on Friday, Manila time.
Hopefully, fans and patrons who sweat it out on the court keep it clean.
