LeBron James has been a busy man this summer, especially for a guy who just won his second consecutive NBA title. But hey, when do the great ones ever have time to rest? From traveling around Asia to see his fans to taking care of his young ones, King James is one extraordinary human being.

And while rumors have been swirling around for the past couple of days about the superstar finally shaving his head bald (which ended up being false), he has people talking yet again, as he is pulling quite a confusing stunt.

Why is the King wearing such outdated attire and bearing a striking resemblance to fellow NBA legend Julius Erving — “The Doctor”!? No information has been released as to why he was playing dress up, but if we had to take our best guess, we’d say it’s for a Nike commercial of some sort.

Aside from that, he is looking crazy in this uniform. Players were not this massive back in the day, and let’s just say, that fro isn’t fooling anybody. He somehow looks balder while wearing a wig. Crazy. Check a video he posted of himself in the full suit below.
