As a die-hard Boston Celtics fan it is painful for me to give LeBron James props or praise on anything. However, the Miami Heat star recently graced the cover of Sports Illustrated's "Sportsman of the Year:2012" issue and got his menswear on, kind of. James is seen in an all-black-everything suiting combo with an un-knotted black slim tie held together by a tie bar—a risky move, but he is able to pull it off. Also, it is hard not to notice the mewelery, no, not the timepiece—the NBA Championship ring. Hopefully, James will continue to don well-fitting suits and garments as this season's post-game style competition is sure to ensue.
