Jared Cunningham may not be widely recognized for his skills on the hardwood, but this sneakerhead-turned-professional basketball player has already made appearances for such teams as the Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, and Cleveland Cavaliers. One major accomplishment he can add to his list of achievements is garnering the attention of LeBron James himself with his impressive sneaker collection.

During the 2016 NBA pre-season, Cunningham landed a spot on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ roster. With his unique mix of vintage and new Nike LeBrons — and by switching shoes game by game and sometimes during halftime — the King was thoroughly impressed.

Thanks to the new Coiski series iCollect, George Kiel III gives us a look at Cunningham’s massive sneaker collection, which includes a ridiculous amount of original Nike LeBrons. Pulling out the Zoom LeBron III in white and navy, Cunningham remembers wearing the shoes the day he met James. Cunningham states:

“This white and blue colorway. They’re very comfortable to play in. I wore these and he was like, ‘Yo Cunningham, those is dope.’ I was all smiling, I was like alright, cool, he’s noticing my kick game, so I’m going to have to bring some more. Ever since then, we’ve been cool and I talk to him on the regular.

My collection is unlike anyone’s you’ve ever featured because I didn’t grow up on Jordans; I grew up on LeBrons. I still have a ton of both, but I cherish my LeBrons more than anything.”
