Gentleman in style: Lebron James


Whether you are casual or avid NBA fan, you have probably witnessed “King James” display his amazing athleticism on the basketball court.  Lebron played for the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2003-2010 without a championship.  Now a superstar for the Miami Heat, Lebron is well positioned to win the championship with fellow star Dwyane Wade.  The Heat down in the series 2-3, Lebron will be tested in the remainder of the current championship series against the Dallas Mavericks.

On July 9, 2010 the day he signed with the Heat, Lebron was introduced to the fans in Miami with a party thrown at the American Airlines arena worthy of a rock star.  Howard Beck of The New York Times described the national fan reaction to the party: “Everyone saw something: greatness, arrogance, self-indulgence, boldness, cowardice, pride, friendship, collusion, joy, cynicism, heroes, mercenaries.”

Whichever side of the camp you are on, one thing is certain, the man is talented on the court and has and great style off!  Of course an annual salary of $14M + endorsements can help build an amazing wardrobe.
