BELLEVILLE, IL (KPLR) – It seems the Althoff Crusaders basketball team may have a famous fan.

For 19-years Greg Lieb has been Athletic Director at Althoff Catholic High School in Belleville, Illinois.

In a series of emails from the Nike Shoe Company and a letter from Lebron James had his varsity basketball team walking on air Tuesday night.

It seems the king had some new shoes for the crusaders.

The defending state champions have been ranked the fifth best team in the country by MaxPreps, and have started the season with a 3-0 record.
