LeBron Says He Might Play In Some Dr. J, Old School Short Shorts

LeBron James is loving life right now, and in a really comfortable spot as a player.

Is James really that comfortable with his standing in the NBA?

Well if he goes ahead with his plan to honor Dr. J,  we will all find out how comfortable in the public eye.  During his much publicized interview with Chris Broussard, James once again paid homage to the great Julius Irving.

During their discussion, LeBron talked about how he had Dr. J in the top three players of all time, and he talked about “possibly wearing those old school, short shorts this season.”

“The conversation was ‘Who do I like?’ ” James said, clarifying his comments. “Who were my three? Who were my favorite three of all time?’ No one knows who’s the greatest three players of all time. It’s impossible. No one can say who’s the best three of all time. You’re going to have Jordan there for sure. But after that, you can have Bird, Magic, Kareem, Wilt, Bill Russell, Oscar, Jerry West, Dr. J. You might even throw LeBron in there, maybe.’…

“As a kid I always heard the name (Dr. J),” James said. “And being a huge Jordan fan, I always knew Jordan looked up to Dr. J. So I was like, ‘Wow, who is Dr. J? If Jordan’s saying he aspired to be like this guy, I want to know who it is.’ And as I got the opportunity to meet him over All-Star weekend and stuff like that, he’s just an unbelievable guy. So you start liking someone like that.”

“I’m just wondering how in the heck they played like that,” James said of the tiny shorts. “I might bring it back, though. I might play in some small shorts this year. Pay my homage to the ’80s, to Dr. J and John Stockton. I don’t think it’s going to catch on, but I’m going to do it one game, maybe opening night. I can’t go all the way up (the legs), though. Athletes today are built a little differently in the legs.”

What do my readers think, can James get away with pulling this look off in 2013?
