Do You Really Know Lebron James?
Lebron James is a FashionMR. You may know him for his astounding NBA career, some know him for his debacle this NBA season, others know him as the rookie who was compared to Michael Jordan his first year of play. But do you really know Lebron James?
Little known about Lebron James is that he was born to a 16 year old mother, who had to give James up to an adoptive family when he was only nine years old. His adopted father, a basketball coach, began to show James the ropes and teach the young James how to play ball. From that day, James was on the top of every single league, finishing high school with a nearly perfect record and having been named Ohio’s Mr. Basketball.
But his basketball career is just one aspect of his very successful endeavours. Little does everyone know, James is also the owner of the Miami boutique, UNKNWN. Which is ironic because this fact is basically unknown to the public and that the store stocks premium Nike shoes, but also stocks classic, and fashionable goods from 3.1 Phillip Lim, A.P.C, and Band of Outsiders. Keep in mind, James donates a good portion of the sales from his store to go into his foundation that he started, called the LeBron James Family Foundation.
James has also been the first black man to grace the cover of Vogue, all the while being the third man to actually appear on the cover. The cover was quite controversial considering the fact that it resembled King Kong advertisements. Controversy aside James has also gave a charitable amount to elect Barack Obama into office and has sat and joked around with Michelle Obama.
All in all, James is not only a renaissance man, he is a fashionMister. If you are looking for more information and history on one of the greatest players in the history of basketball, take a look at the documentary More Than a Game by Kristopher Belman.
