James’ off-court style has always been clean, dating back to his days as a high school student at Akron’s St. Vincent St. Mary’s High School.
Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson discusses LeBron James on MSNBC.
James’ style has seamlessly evolved.
Over the years, his ecclectic style has included oversized throwback jerseys and sweatpants worn during his first stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers, all the way down to the ever popular, European cut suits completed with a form-fitting turtleneck sometimes seen worn during James’ Big-3 Miami Heat playing days.
During his second stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers, “The King” donned form fitting sweat suits, an array of sweaters, funky socks and skinny legged jeans.
During this year’s NBA Finals, James rocked a suit with shorts instead of typical long pants.
The first pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, LeBron James is a three-time NBA Champion, fourteen-time NBA All Star and two-time Olympic Basketball gold medalist.
