Lebron James // GQ Magazine (February 2009)

Lebron James, who’s known to take great pride in his wardrobe, is featured on the cover of the February 2009 issue of GQ Magazine. But he can’t credit himself solely for his impeccable style. A few years ago, he hired a personal stylist who helps him out in the fashion department, and in the interview with GQ, he mentioned NBA commissioner David Stern, thanking him for instituting the rule where players have to get dressed for the game.

“I have to thank David Stern,” James said. “Ever since he put in the rule about having to get dressed for the game, I had to get dressed.”

The 24-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers player also mentioned how excited he was to be featured on the cover of GQ magazine.

“It’s great. It shows that I’m fashionable. I never thought I would be on the cover of GQ. But I’ve done some things I never thought I would do.”
