If Howard Stern considers himself the “King of All Media,” I would love to know what LeBron James would be. Not all that long ago, we touched on the movie that chronicled his grade school/high school team titled More Than A Game. Of course, he has “The LeBron’s.” And then just yesterday, we touched on the upcoming commercial featuring James sporting a Cleveland Browns jersey.
But with all of this coverage on screens of all shapes and sizes, the Cavaliers’ small forward will also appear on next months coverof Gentlemen’s Quarterly – or “GQ” as the kids call it.
Obviously, being on the cover of a national magazine has its own merits. Many forget the nearly 4,000 word article that was written about him in the same magazine four years ago. The one that was written at a time where the basketball world still had their questions.
True prodigies don’t merely excel, they ultimately represent something greater than their area of expertise, and it’s anybody’s guess what LeBron will come to symbolize. [...] Can the adult world just let LeBron James be a basketball prodigy?
Now that we have all watched James evolve beyond a “prodigy,” the upcoming article appears to be a bit more laid back. James took the time to play some pick-up basketball with the writers. They discussed his endorsement contracts, his family and his support for the Barack Obama campaign. And to think that Damon Jones thought that he was the best-dressed man in the NBA…
And for what it’s worth, I was rocking the silver tie bar long before LBJ was.
