LeBron James is probably one of the better dressed players in the NBA. Recently, the Miami Heat forward revealed who inspires his personal style, mentioning a few celebrities in his WWD interview. 

James credits good friend Jay Z for his obsession with watches. Since Hov introduced him to the luxury timepieces six years ago, he's collected about 10 watches since. Growing out of that introduction, he also just launched a limited edition watch he designed with Audemars Piguet, where he's been a brand ambassador since 2011. 

With regards to his fashion knowledge and taste, James says all thanks go to Michael Jordanone of the most stylish athletes of all time, and football and baseball player Deion Sander. He says both of them "had swagger", adding that Jordan had a global impact on the way people dressed. As for Deion, he says he's a "huge believer in [his] quote about if you look good, you feel good, you play good and so on."
