The Lebrons are nice too, but they're too heavy for my taste. They also feel too bulky.
I can only play once a month these days, but I used to play twice a week before. There is definitely a difference in responsiveness between zoom and lunar. Kobes have been my ballin shoes since the iv's, but I prefer the vi to the current version with lunar. I haven't tried the zoom version of the viii's. If you have no fear of lowtops, then I would go with the kobes. I hated the kd V due to the stitched down tongue. It was just so uncomfortable to play in. If you can afford a pair of jordan xiii's, those were my favorite all around ballin shoe. Great ankle support and fit. The traction was not amazing, but it was good on clean floors.
