Default Predict when Nike will stop putting out Lebron shoes

Lets face it, his marketability has taken a sharp decline. The top 5 players according to marketability are

1. Dirk
2. Kobe
3. Nash
4. KG
5. Tim mother effin Duncan

http://www.mediabistro.com/sportsnew...itously_b12446

If you can't top Tim Duncan in marketability, then you're in trouble. I'm sure Nike is testing the waters for another season or two, but the amount of money they've invested in him and how much his endorsement deal cost it's tough to think that they're turning a profit on LeBron. I think another 2 seasons of Finals loss he's toast. Kobe shoe wasn't even put out while his court and marketability took a hit. Nike waited it out, and i'm pretty sure they would have dropped a player of his caliber if his image didn't improve. It eventually did obviously. I feel liek Lebron's in the same position, BUT Nike's already been putting out shoes so it's odd to just halt his series out of nowhere. To reiterate I give him 2 more seasons with Nike. I don't even think Fubu would take him at the rate his career is freefalling

Secondly, is Kobe the ONLY player since Jordan to have his own series of shoes into his 30's? Testament of the GOAT's greatness .

I'm pretty sure LeBrons are some of the most popular shoes on the market. Nike isn't stupid, they're gonna keep making LeBrons for a while. I wouldn't be surprised to see some even after he retires.

Just because you hate him doesn't mean you have to come on ISH with your obvious agenda to make him look like sh!t because you're so insecure that you need ppl to agree with you.

This kid has already lost his mind. You are probably butt hurt after I made the Durant and Bryant comparison thread.
