Defeat the rest of the world? Check. Defeat the rest of the NBA? Well, that’s taking a little longer. But with a game fiercer than this look, we think LeBron will be just fine.—Adam Fleischer

    Did he shake hands with D12 after they won the medal?

    LeBong Shames.

    Best Player in the World! Hate on haters!

  • Jason

    Best player in the world lives and works in Staples Center and already has 4 rings. LeBron’s great, but he’s a bad sport and had Nike execs confiscate that infamous dunk tape. He could use a little growing up.

    Jukai is the Bill O’Reilly of SLAMonline? Hmmm…. over 36% of all Americans have at least smoked marijuana once. So what LeBron has done that 8 years ago. But as it goes, “the fans” will probably hold this against him ’til the day he retires!

    This ran in SLAM but not on the cover (“Still want to call this guy LeBronze?). Can’t do the mean muggin grillz anymore. Unless its Kobe’s overbite rabbit grill? Well, at least nobody saw that one before, not even Jelly Bean’s son the Italian Japanese beef, yet Chinese loved Mamba 24 dude.

    ^ Who cares who’s the best Jason? When they’re both Puppets. People ate up that marketing, while David Stern suddenly remembered he used to be nicknamed “Money” too.

    LeBronze Blames (everyone but himself)

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    LOL @ Z.

  • B.B.BALLER

    Hey Jason Kobe does the same thing.

  • Prison Mike

    LeBron can’t win a gold medal without Kobe.

  • Ole M

    If The King puts in the US, I guess Carmelo puts in some of the other letters..? :)

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    LeBron can’t win without Booze either.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    So who’s Paul Aresu? That shot is amazing: lighting, angle, feel … That man’s a genius – he got LeBron to look sexy (and many things he might be but sexy is not one of them).

  • http://www.broy7.com nate the great

    why in the hell do the keep putting pics of this fool up?
    he had the chossen one with the tat, him in the tunnel, and now this?
    jesus christ, their is more people in the nba then just him.
    HE HASNT DONE SH!T!

  • http://www.manutd.com z

    of course he hasn’t, nate. harrell, i’m assuming that you haven’t been on this site for too long.

  • Dan vito

    lmao slam magazine is like ad space for lebron. It’s crazy, lebron could like…go to the finals, not win any game, and you could go back onto this site reading that lebron james is the number 1 nba player of all time. Hilarious.

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    nate: he hasn’t done sh*t? Are you serious? That’s a very, very weird statement to make.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Lebron first looks dumb with all those tats, he just lost going global. Also I am tried of seeing this fool, Vince Carter has more highlights than him and Dominque Wilkins, until he wins something he is to me on their level. NO RINGS, NO RESPECT, the chose one, also please slam we are tired of him, I would rather read about AI going to clippers and also, Dwight Howard deserve this picture and also didn’t Lebron run from the ball during the Olympics, YES HE DID!!!!

  • WOODY

    It makes perfect sense. Lebron is probably the most dominating player on the planet but since his TEAM was poorly matched with Orlando last year, HE is an inferior player who no other team would want. Players have stats and domination – teams win titles. The only argument about LJ is whether he’s #1 or #2. And by the way, we English speakers start proper names and sentences with capital letters. Work harder on hiding your ignorance.

  • http://djsklfl.com Jukai

    Gerald: Lebron has no skill cause he smoked weed. All his braincells are burnt out.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    The Seed, did you actually say that LeBron had no chance of going global? Because of his tattoos? 1- I wasn’t aware that he wasn’t ALREADY global. 2- Tattoos? Really? That’s your argument? 3- It must be kinda tiring to hate so much on someone, no?

    ==========================================
    Talk about spouting bullsh!t.

  • Rusty

    trade lebron shames for shaq!

  • http://www.slamonline.com 24 Karat Gold

    Hey WOODY, us English speakers also don’t capitalize every letter of our name so get your hypocrite comments out of here.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    Kobe is the real King. See his shoulder tats, Butterfly Crown. F that Monarch guy in those Venture Brothers shows. Kobe doesn’t live in a house, but a Butterfly Kokoon, sh*ts global Butterfly Effect. (can’t believe I did the C with K replace joke here for Cocoon)

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    The Monarch just biting off of Kobe, The Rock’s Scorpion King movie, should have been Kobe, Butterfly King. Mariah Carey? Kobe. Ashton Kutcher movie? Also Kobe. Birdman? Nope. Butterfly King Kobe.

  • D12FSU

    he made the same face last season after the ECF…..

  • http://slamonline.com/ Spaceship Jay

    I’m sure he’ll do what he needs to this season.

  • David Curran

    LeBron can win gold without Kobe…Without a doubt

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Somebody tell Allen Iverson that tattoos prevent your from going global.

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    spurs are going to win the title, and i hope they beat cavs in the finals, plus a sweep, ha!

  • ED

    The Roc Nation
