Nice one loco, not surprising to see Kobe also pushing the one man kobe show at the "TEAM" RALLY.

At the risk of sounding like an old man, I find it disturbing that this up and coming generation will grow up seeing guys like LeBron ridiculously self promoting and consider this to be normal and acceptable.

I think this sort of "role model" is even more dangerous than the Ben Cousins off the rails coke snorting police escaping role model, as it's so subtle. Kids see Cousins doing that stuff and it's easy to see the consequences, but when guys like LeBron, who have a clean image, are going round wearing a T-shirt bragging how good they are the kids are being indoctrinated into beleiving that life is all about big noting yourself and everyone else in the world can get stuffed.

LeBron and Kobe need to look at Federer and Nadal to see how an elite athlete should conduct themselves. Can you imagine either of those guys walking round would a T-shirt boasting their world ranking or the number of grand slams they've won?

Should point them in Brett Maher's direction - that's how a champion behaves.

Well said Billo.... Roger and Rafer are more reminiscent of the class of MJ.

Why do I get this image of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant playing together in their super-exclusive super-secret club tree house with a sign "No Wade's allowed".

"Guys? Come on - let me in. Guys? Dagnamit"

Billo sorry to disappoint you but Federer does the same thing to some degree. Have a look at this photo.

I have also seen him do other similar things.

I don't see what the issue is Its just a part of advertising these days. Kids would want to get those shirts players are wearing. If they wear a shirt that all the other players are wearing then what would be the point. They want player specific shirts.

Errrrr...... KJ, so what?..... it's a shoe logo, it's not egotistical at all (unlike LBJ's shirt). No different to a tiger woods logo or the MJ jumpman.

Loco... funny stuff.... the image of Bron and Kobe in a tree house playing with their Masters of the Universe dolls wasn't very hard to envisage at all!

They've sold out to their shoe/clothing sponsors and are therefore at their mercy - that means pushing a puppet-hand-with-rings t-shirt. NFI who came up with that LBJ MVP one though - that's terrible.

... unless Phil Jackson was holding the strings pulling the signature face.

I believe the LBJ MVP shirt is in reference to the RUN DMC shirts
