It’s a mismatch for LeBron James when it comes to his uniform shorts

LeBron James didn’t do too much else wrong during a win over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night, but he did come out wearing the wrong shorts.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were wearing throwback uniforms featuring stripes down the sides of the jerseys and shorts — everybody except James, that is. He started the game in shorts with no stripes. The Cavs said a locker-room attendant laid out the wrong shorts for LeBron.

"I never realized it. I mean, yellow top, yellow bottom," he said. "I know we have a couple different yellow uniforms now, so I’ll be checking them from now on."

James changed into the correct shorts during a timeout in the first quarter.

And, yes, just like everyone else — given that we’re near the Super Bowl — we’ll call it a wardrobe malfunction.
