IFWT_LeBron McDonalds

LeBron James is one of the highest paid players in the NBA and in sports period, not because of his contract but because of his endorsements.  In fact, the King may have one too many endorsements and can’t keep track of them because he accidentally forgot McDonald’s was one of them.

In making a point about how he became more serious about taking care of his body as he grew older, LeBron James said he “ate McDonald’s” as a teenage rookie with the Cleveland Cavaliers. …

It happened today, when James was asked before shootaround for tonight’s road game against the Detroit Pistons how old he was when he became serious about lifting weights.

James replied: “Umm, 24. I ate McDonald’s my first couple years in the NBA. I didn’t stretch. It didn’t matter. I was 18 and I could do whatever I wanted to.”

Perhaps sensing the mistake, James recovered when he was asked later when he last ate at McDonald’s.

“Every day. Every day. Every day,” James said, drawing laughter from reporters. “I had it this morning. Egg and sausage McMuffin. All day.”

We all know these well trained athletes don’t eat and use everything they endorse but they have to pretend they do at all times.
