(97.1 The Ticket) — LeBron James has been accused of being many things over his NBA career — a traitor, a flopper, etc. One thing that no one has ever called him is out-of-shape.
Regradless, James has made an effort this offseason to seemingly slim down for the upcoming season in which he will make his much publicized return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst tweeted that James has cut out carbs this summer and has lost a significant amount of weight so far. The Cavaliers’ official website has James listed at 250 pounds, and at 6-foot-8 — that’s far from overweight. It will be interesting to see what James comes into training camp at.
James used to look like a freight train coming down the floor, now he might be a little less intimidating.
