As has become custom, Nike is honoring the forthcoming Black History Month by introducing a new 2014 collection that is focused on a few of the brand’s biggest athletic stars of pan-African ancestry, American and otherwise. In doing so, a few lucky players like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Carmelo Anthony have full collections that feature their shoes and apparel that pronounce the year’s new BHM color themes.
