PHOTO: LeBron James' Shoes For Christmas Day Are Predictably Red And Green

LeBron James will open up his second season as a member of the Miami Heat on Christmas Day when his team takes on the Dallas Mavericks in a rematch of the 2011 NBA Finals. There's far less fanfare for James and the Heat this season, but this is still a big game given what happened to the Heat in the Finals last year. For the occasion, James will sport these shoes, given to him by Nike. Via CNBC's Darren Rovell:

The shoe perfectly corresponds with the colors of Christmas, with a red base and green shoelaces. James' Heat squad normally wears maroon road uniforms, so this at least somewhat resembles their colors.
