Wristy business: LeBron James’ watch collection proves why he’s called ‘King James’

Check LeBron James’ watch collection, it’s just another reason why they call him ‘King James’.

LeBron is arguably the greatest basketballer of this generation. I know how to play the court, whether he needs to block, play-make, or shoot the winning shot – He’s a certified all-rounder.  We see this sense of dynamism, audaciousness, ferocity, and elegance, in his watch collection too. Peep into his watch box, you’ll instantly see that the man isn’t shy of flexing unconventional watch colors. More so, his wrist is always occupied with ultra-rare Rolexes, Pateks, and fancy APs and RMs, here’s a quick look.
