King James! NBA star, LeBron James covers November Edition of GQ Magazine

Cleveland Cavaliers star player, LeBron James has definitely got the 'Greek god vibes' as he covers the November edition of GQ Magazine titled ‘The King’.

'King James' in the new edition opens up about being among the 50 greatest living athletes, his vision and plans for life after basketball, his now-famous tweet to President Trump and more.

The 32-year old who has been more consistently dominant and impactful over the past decade and a half in the NBA with four MVP awards to his name revealed he would love to play against his oldest son LeBron James Jr. [Bronny].

James also revealed that he had no desire of running for president of the United States, adding that there was no positivity with President Trump. He also revealed the reason why speaking up on social issues was so important to him, stating that it was his responsibility to do so because he believed he was placed in his current position for a higher cause.

 

Read excerpts from LeBron James' Interview:

Would you play when you're washed up?

"I know I won't be able to play at this level forever but to be washed and play… I don't know if I can play washed but I damn sure would love to stick around if my oldest son can have an opportunity to play against me. That'd be, that'd be the icing on the cake right there".

 

Would you ever want to be president?

"Of the United States? Nah. I say no because of always having to be on someone else's time. From the outside looking in, it seems like the president always has to be there—gotta be there. You really don't have much 'me time.' I enjoy my 'me time.' The positive that I see from being the president… Well, not with the president we have right now because there's no positive with him, but the positive that I've seen is being able to inspire. Your word has command to it. If you're speaking with a knowledgeable, caring, loving, passionate voice, then you can give the people of America and all over the world hope".

 

Why is being known for speaking up on social issues so important to you?

"I don't do it to get praise or to be in an article. I do it because it's my responsibility. It's my responsibility. I believe that I was put here for a higher cause. We have people, not only today but over the course of time; that have been in the higher positions that chose to do it and chose not to do it".
