LeBron James knows how to turn a defender’s ankles inside-out. He also knows how to turn heads. Why wouldn’t he? LeBron is a mogul in both sports and entertainment.

The iconic NBA superstar and his Los Angeles Lakers opened the season against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. The packed Staples Center crowd and the television audience at home got a real treat.

King James arrived at the game looking all business. Wearing an all-black suit, blacked-out sunglasses, and a brand-new pair of Prada shoes, Lebron looked as fresh as the day he was drafted.

LeBron’s Cloudburst Thunder shoes alone retail for almost a thousand dollars. The highest paid player in the NBA apparently doesn’t think making a statement has a price.

While LeBron turned heads with his fashion, he had a heck of a night on the hardwood as well. The sure-fire future Hall of Famer led his team in a spirited effort, but it wasn’t enough.

The Lakers dropped the game to the Warriors by a score of 121-114. LeBron James led the Lakers with a double-double, tallying 34 points and 11 rebounds.
