A new pair of shoes called “Concept 1′s” from a company called Athletic Propulsion Labs has been banned by the NBA.
These shoes cost $300 a pair and claim to increase your vertical jump by 3.5 inches or more, just by wearing them.
It’s supposed to make you jump higher by using a technology called “Load ‘N Launch”, a spring-like device installed on the soles of the shoes.
Now, this sounds fishy to me, so I did some digging, and found a cool video that puts the Concept 1′s to the test using real athletes…
(Shout-out to Heyward for giving me the link to this video)
First of all, I want you to know that I have nothing against LeBron James.
In fact, I think he is one of top 2 players in the NBA right now, alongside Kobe Bryant.
After watching this video, I have to give it to LeBron – he ALWAYS goes for the block.
This is a great defensive attitude, because it shows that he wants to make a play… even if it means getting embarrassed by being dunked on.
Which is why I never understood why he had the Jordan Crawford dunk video confiscated.
He had been dunked on before, so it’s wasn’t anything new.
Anyway, I think LeBron needs to be applauded for always going for the block.
What do you think?
