Lebron wearing short shorts & smaller jerseys... for the kids????

CLEVELAND, Ohio – These days Cleveland Cavaliers' superstar LeBron James is sporting smaller game shorts and a tighter-fitting jersey as a way to help shape the future.

The four-time MVP has done some self-reflecting in recent years. He's observed the changes in the NBA, which led to questioning himself: Am I doing all that I can? Am I truly leaving my imprint on not only the game, but also the league?

"I'm always thinking about ways I can be of help," James told cleveland.com. "That's what it's about, making sure you're doing your part."

James has proven to be more than just an athlete, as he's the most socially conscious athlete of this generation with his willingness to voice his opinion on issues of the day.

His personal objective is making a difference, on the court or off of it.

This season he trimmed his uniform shorts by a couple inches, and had his jersey made snugger than in years past. He had expressed to those close to him he wants to leave the baggy look behind and place a renewed emphasis on professional appearance when it comes to the size of his uniform as well as his pregame and postgame attire.

When he arrives for work at The Q, he typically wears a sportcoat. It's his way of reaffirming that it's a business atmosphere. Professionalism and conduct were a main focus of the Cavaliers' pre-regular-season team meeting in late October.

As James is the biggest name in the league and arguably in all of sports, he feels an obligation to shift the minds of kids on what is considered fashionable and acceptable. The kids who will play in the NBA in the future look to today's players as role models.

When it's all said and done, if James goes down as the best basketball player of all-time and that's the extent of it, he'd consider that a failure of a career.

Growing up in Akron, he has seen the effects of poverty and a lack of education. He's witnessed how senseless murders affect families for generations and he's seen the effects of people who could have had an influence doing nothing to put a stop to it.

"I have a calling, man," James told cleveland.com. "Everything I do is for the people I love. I was just brought up that way."

James can't force change, but he can force people to think and take notice. It's pretty cool to dress professionally, and he wants everyone to know that.

    He already has. I don't give a damn what ESPN and the media says.

    Durant could've but he wants to defer to RW too much and play nice.

    I don't see anything wrong with it. Nothing wrong with trying to bring some professionalism. It crosses over to other things. When I played in High school, we had to wear suits to away games. Made 🤬 get suits which could then be used in interviews for jobs or scholarships.

    I can understand that (suits) but he's talking about a pair of tight shorts.

    This stunt by Lebron was a fail.
