4. Oopsie on LeBron’s jersey
The Lakers are excited to have LeBron, but James hasn’t signed the papers to officially make him a member of the team, yet.
No one at the NBA Store got this memo, as James’ No. 23 Lakers’ jersey was being sold prematurely.
When the retail outlet in Manhattan found out they weren’t supposed to be selling them, the shirts were quickly pulled off the racks, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
Fanatics couldn’t print them up fast enough.
The kicker on al of this. James will never wear the model of jersey that was hanged in the NBA store. the shirt style will change before the start of the season, per Rovell.
James is said to be in Europe on vacation.
He has not made any public statements regarding his decision to leave the Cavaliers and sign with the Lakers. He probably won’t either, until he has no choice when the season begins to ramp up this fall.
