LeBron James sported an unusual bare-chested beach outfit while arriving for the game vs Nuggets and Dwyane Wade was quick to mock him for his ‘Miami’ look.
The Lakers have been hot and cold in the bubble and LeBron James’ offensive struggles have had a massive role to play in it. While LeBron has been decent on the offensive end, he hasn’t really activated ‘playoff mode’ like he had promised.
However, he is now getting used to the Bubble life, and feels that the Lakers are getting into the groove ahead of the playoffs.
His choice of clothing for his pre-game outfit vs Nuggets certainly showed that LeBron was feeling more at home in Orlando. The MVP candidate brought out his inner ‘Miami beach guy’ to the fore, blending in with the Orlando life.
LeBron James’ Orlando Vice’ pre-game outfit
LeBron surprised the entire NBA fraternity tonight when he appeared for the game wearing a beach shirt. He put up the post on social media with the caption, ‘Orlando vice vibes’.
The 3 time NBA champion has had a few ‘extravagant’ pre-game outfits and this one clearly ranks amongst the ‘weirdest’ of them all.
While he has in the past experimented with suit shorts, this has to be probably the first time that he has gone bare chested while arriving for a game.

Dwyane Wade mocks LeBron James’ ‘Miami beach outfit’
Dwyane Wade and LeBron James enjoyed a few amazing seasons in Miami, leading the Heat to 2 NBA titles. The duo would have enjoyed the Miami weather and beaches while they were there, and Wade just wanted to bring back those memories for himself too.
On ‘NBA on TNT’, Wade mocked LeBron for his outfit by mimicking his pre-game look on air and it was just hilarious to see how he approached the entire thing.

LeBron James and the Lakers in the Bubble
The Lakers have already secured the number 1 seed in the West. However, they’ll have to wait until August 16th to know about their first round playoff opponents. For the 8th seed in the West, a play-in tournament will take place between the 8th and 9th seed, where in the 9th seed will have to beat the 8th seed twice in order to make it to the playoffs.
Lakers have been a little off boil, but with LeBron leading the way, trust them to find their feet when it really matters.
