Back on Wednesday, LeBron James got the opportunity to meet one of his idols in wrestler Ric Flair during Miami’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats.
For those of you that didn’t know, LeBron was a huge wrestling fan growing up in Akron, Ohio and while speaking about the meeting, he bestowed Flair with the ultimate compliment by saying that he helped create “swag”:
“When I was a kid, I loved wrestling,” James told reporters. “He was one of the guys I loved, too. I think he’s one of the creators of what we call swag these days with the Rolexes and the stretch limos and all the girls and all that stuff. He’s one of the creators of swag.”
