Ben Simmons shows LeBron his LSU-themed LeBron sneakers
Yes, life is good for LSU freshman Ben Simmons. On Tuesday, the 19-year-old Australian proudly tweeted a picture of a gorgeous pair of Tigers-themed LeBron IXs, complete with "Geaux Tigers" spelled out across the ankle strap, and tagged King James himself:
The LSU LeBrons are just one pair in a mighty collection of kicks that Simmons can't help but show off to the world. Here, he shared a glimpse at his extensive collection of LeBron 13s:
The relationship between Simmons and James apparently goes back a while, the King told The Times Picayune:
"I've watched him way before he showed up in Baton Rouge," James said. ''I've watched him excel for three or four years now. He worked my camp this summer as a college kid.
"I'm not surprised. He's a talented guy."
Sure, it's all praise and compliments now. But in a year, when Simmons is on the floor and staring at James on the other side, there will be no mercy -- especially if Simmons makes the mistake of wearing a signature LeBron sneaker against him in competition.
