LeBron’s Latest Magazine Cover

The King, who’s gracing the cover of GQ next month, on the importance of having a good tailor: “You look good, you play good,” James said Monday after practice. “I was brought up that way.”

    First black male? There has never been a black on GQ. Jordan, Tiger or Obama never was on there cover?

    It’s easy to look good when you’re a millionaire. And even growing up, I’m sure there were plenty of ‘gifts’ from scouts & agents….

  • Squirrel7

    Haha, just clicked the link, is he seriously wearing a tie-clip? Over here (UK), middle-aged salesmen are the only people you’d see rocking one of those!

    first black male was on vogue

    co-sign squirrel, you cant say that with a tie clip on.

    His face is photoshopped big time.

  • Squirrel7

    I think his hair might be too, as whenever I see Lebron minus his headband I think he looks like he’s battling premature baldness…….. (I’m aware the headband doesn’t give him more hair, just draws the attention away from his thinning locks!)

    Underdog stole my comment. Photoshop, your the best! Keep it real son…

    Oh great, Lebron is on/in GQ now. Next thing you know, he’ll be in a movie. I can’t wait to see more of Lebron. I really don’t think I’ve had enough of him.

    Hating is fun! I won’t even pretend to be neutral on this one. I mean…
    “It’s easy to look good when you’re a millionaire. And even growing up, I’m sure there were plenty of ‘gifts’ from scouts & agents….”
    Seriously, what the f*ck does that even mean?

    Down, Farmer Jones, down boy… no snapping at the heels, now.

    One day you people will realize I’m actually Kobe’s agent…

    …and it’s all reverse psychology.

  • http://hypebeast.com Spaceship Jay

    Yes Doc Funk…. Jam Harder. @Ryan Jones; Is that what he’s saying in his interview? Seriously?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    I do not understand your question, Jay.

    Jay does not understand his question, Jay.

    Well, here’s something the writer says about him in the article, which can be found on GQ’s site:
    “Almost from the moment we met him, a few things were clear. One, he’s very funny. Two, there can’t possibly be another 24-year-old in the world more at ease with who he is and where he’s going than LeBron James (witness his basically telling Charles Barkley to shut his piehole when Barkley criticized him for talking about where he might or might not be playing in 2010). I imagine there are plenty of times when that quality comes off as arrogance, but at least in our time with him, shooting some hoops and then talking for a while after the game, he came across as the anti-Jordan—extremely smart and likable and interpersonally generous, not the imperious empty suit everyone knew Jordan was but was too afraid to say.”
    So, there’s that…

    @ Ryan; My question is, is that a quote from what he actually said in GQ magazine. @MyKal; Is that supposed to be a masculine or feminine name? I cannot tell. Let me say it over and over to myself….. Nope, still can’t tell.

  • http://gmail.com Spaceship Jay

    ……Still can’t.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Jay: The quote about looking good being easy when you’re a millionaire? No. I cut & pasted that from the third comment in this thread. I hope we’ve clarified the situation.

    Thanks Ryan. And thank you as well MyKal.

    Is that his real face? Don’t think so.

  • chintao

    I’m no LeBron fan, but I really love GQ for opening up on Jordan that way. Now, if only someone would seriously investigate that whole thing with his father….

    @chintao: oh no you didn’t!!!
