Giannis, fans are doing “The LeBron Challenge”
James, now 32 years of age and entering his 15th season in the NBA, is sometimes playfully teased about his hairline, but the three-time champion never let’s it bother him.
With Detroit native Tee Grizzley’s “First Day Out” playing in the background, James — a known connesieur of all things hip-hop — went about his daily workout routine. During a break between sets, James began belting Grizzley’s lyrics.
James’ video has since gone viral. Fans from all across the NBA landscape have began creating their own renditions of the scene. In fact, the short clip has earned its own hashtag: #LeBronJamesChallenge.
Tee Grizzley, also known as Terry Wallace, tells TMZ that his record sales tripled after James posted the video.
“Shoutout to LeBron James,” Grizzley said. “You done made me a couple dollars.”
