The LeBron James era of Los Angeles Lakers basketball is set to begin. And now, we have the first non-photoshop view of “The King” in purple and gold.
LeBron shared a couple of pictures showing himself in Lakers gear (h/t Bleacher Report).

As if No. 23 jerseys weren’t flying off the rack already, LeBron surely stirred up even more interest. We can imagine dozens of fans flocked to their preferred online shop and ordered a uniform after seeing this post.
Interestingly, he was also wearing Nike Kobe 1 Protro shoes with a Lakers colorway. One legend respecting another?
Regardless, five years from now, perhaps we’ll see LeBron James Jr. suiting up alongside his dad in the same purple and gold uniform.
