LeBron James Leaves Skid Marks on Court After Falling, Sliding Against Warriors (Photos, Video)

Nike was just handed its newest marketing angle on a hardwood platter.

LeBron James took a tumble during the Miami Heat’s Thursday night loss to the Golden State Warriors, but it was no ordinary man’s tumble. King James went down in a puff of smoke and burnt metal — well, actually, he just left skid marks, but it was still very impressive.

When James got up from his fall, a pair of long black marks could be seen on the floor from where he tried to put on the brakes.

Check it out in the video and photos below.
