The last time that an NBA player/team wore short shorts during an official NBA game was the Los Angeles Lakers in 2007 but it appears that Miami Heat star LeBron James is considering wearing them this season.
During a recent interview with ESPN’s Chris Broussard for ESPN’s Heat Index, LeBron tossed around the idea:
“I’m just wondering how in the heck they played like that,” James said of the tiny shorts. “I might bring it back, though. I might play in some small shorts this year. Pay my homage to the ’80s, to Dr. J and John Stockton. I don’t think it’s going to catch on, but I’m going to do it one game, maybe opening night. I can’t go all the way up (the legs), though. Athletes today are built a little differently in the legs.”
