LeBron makes NBA Finals fashion fuss with suit shorts

OAKLAND, United States, June 1, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Four-time NBA Most
Valuable Player LeBron James was raising eyebrows Thursday even before taking
court for the NBA Finals opener by wearing suit shorts when he walked into
the arena.

The 33-year-old superstar stepped off the bus for his eighth consecutive
NBA championship series and ninth overall wearing a classic gray jacket with
matching shorts instead of long trousers.

He also sported gray socks, black shoes and dark sunglasses as he strolled
to the locker room at Oracle Arena.

“If LeBron is wearing shorts, it must be in,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver
said.

Jordan Clarkson followed the lead of James by rocking the suit with shorts
combo but Twitter criticism was quick to follow once the Cavaliers tweeted
video of the team’s arrival with the Whatever It Takes hashtag.

The Cavaliers and Warriors are meeting in the best-of-seven series for the
fourth consecutive year. Golden State took the title in 2015 and 2017 while
the Cavaliers won their first NBA crown in 2016.
