LeBron's threads

    LeBron James has been on the cover of GQ. And yet every time I see him walking to one of these meetings this week, he's wearing a white T-shirt and a back pack.

    Shouldn't LeBron be dressing better for what amount to job interviews?

    And I get that he doesn't really have to.

    But should he?

    Nope. He doesn't have to impress them, they have to impress him for the right to pay him $100 million.
    Great freaking world we live in

    LeBron is not the interviewee he's the interviewer. He can wear what he wants.

    That's right, spnited, how dare we enjoy management having to grovel before an employee. Am loving it

    Yeah, right, these are job interviews. As if one of these teams will decide he's not the man for the job and hire someone else.

    The most hype nonstory perhaps of all time. All of it. The threads. The speculation. Zzzzzzzzzzz.

    Ya think Mark Cuban would turn LeBron down for being underdressed in an interview?

    I would just like him to show a tad bit of professionalism. I wouldn't expect John Paxon or Pat Riley to walk into the meeting sporting a "My Brother Went to Maui and All I Got Was This Stupid T-Shirt" T-shirt into an interview with a prospective coach, for example. I get that LeBron is the one actually interviewing them, but I don't think that exempts him from displaying some modicum of professionalism and/or maturity instead of looking like a spring breaking frat boy from Big State U.

    You realize you're talking about someone who, in a t-shirt and jeans, is more dressed up than he is when he actually goes to work, right?

    I'd offer a day's pay for him to sign right now and just make it all stop. Makes one long for football recruiting season.

    What's a tad bit? More than a tad? More than a bit? Both?
