LeBron James Wears "Equality" Shoes During Cavaliers' Opener
Meanwhile, James' Nike jersey ripped during the game, which "marked the sportswear company's debut" as NBA uniform provider in the regular season. A "large tear was visible down the back" of James' jersey, "between the numerals of his #23 kit." The rip appeared after "incidental contact" with Celtics F Jaylen Brown. It was "at least the second Nike jersey to endure a large tear during play," after Lakers G Tyler Ennis "suffered a ripped jersey in a preseason game" (WSJ.com, 10/18).
