LeBron James’s Skinny Jeans vs Richard Jefferson’s Posse
The equation looks something like this: “NBA player + photographic device – basketball court = disaster. During the playoffs Kobe Bryant’s LA Times photoshoot set the bar at a ridiculously high level—it’s the Wilt Chamberlain 100-point game of horrible “modeling”—but being the warrior that he is, LeBron James felt the need to try to match Kobe by getting in front of the camera for GQ magazine.
And of course, LeBron failed.
He did get close though. On their own, the skinny jeans are spectacular, but then you need to combine them with the text from the GQ article.
“I don’t think he ever cared about LeBron”
- LeBron on Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert
“Clevelanders, because they were the bigger-city kids when we were growing up, looked down on us.…So we didn’t actually like Cleveland. We hated Cleveland growing up. There’s a lot of people in Cleveland we still hate to this day.”
- LeBron on Cleveland
Why oh why would he say this?
Still, even with the use of third person and kicking Cleveland where (and while) it burns, based on the photoshoot alone we have to say the captain of the failboat of NBA fashion models is still Kobe. Story of LeBron’s career—comes close to replicating Kobe, but ultimately doesn’t get the win.
Now onto Richard Jefferson of the San Antonio Spurs. While we’re not going to cast dispersions on RJ’s character, just know that a year ago he left this stunner at the altar and right now he’s hanging with this group of characters (including current Laker Luke Walton and ex-Laker Kareem Rush) in Europe.

We can neither confirm or deny that this is what they got up to right after the above picture was taken…
