LeBron James has a new honor that he can add to his list of accomplishments. The basketball great now has a strain of cannabis named after him. The new strain of weed is called LA’ Bron James and was introduced by hip-hop star The Game last week.
A Los Angeles native and huge Lakers fan, The Game said that the new herb is an attempt to entice James into playing basketball for the L.A. Lakers. He wants James to consider the team if the four-time MVP decides to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“[It’s] a strain inspired by my city and them trying to bring King James to the Lake Show,” The Game said.
The Game also shared a video of some sample nugs of the new brand.
“Would you look at that shit!” he exclaims as he displays the flower. As the short video continues, a friend and business partner of The Game twists up a joint of the new pot.
LA’ Bron James is a new offering from The Game’s cannabis company Trees By Game, which developed the strain. When he launched the venture last year, High Times asked the rapper what set Trees By Game apart from other cannabis brands.
“That’s a little like asking what makes a Bentley different from a Honda,” he replied. “[They’re] both good cars, both get you to where you want to be. But, for some people, it’s about how you get there. That’s where Trees By Game sets the bar.”
Will LeBron Leave Cleveland?
Although rumors of James’ possible free agency are running rampant, he has not yet officially announced plans to leave Cleveland. He has until June 29 to decide if he will opt out of the last year of his contract with the Cavaliers and become a free agent.
