Lebron's Pose for Vogue

King James continues to add to his resume of basketball and celebrity achievements. This time Lebron's feat comes on the cover of a magazine, that only a few men have ever appeared on, Vogue. Lebron will be featured on the upcoming Vogue issue with supermodel Gisele, the famous girlfriend of Patriot's QB, Tom Brady.

From Yahoo Sports:

Vogue is featuring athletes and models in an annual issue devoted to size and shape. The 6-foot-9 James and 5-foot-11 Bundchen, who dates Patriots star quarterback Brady, were a natural pairing.

“Nobody says more about fashion size and shape than Gisele and LeBron,” Vogue spokesman Patrick O’Connell said. “LeBron is an amazing star and athlete that has crossed over into a cultural phenomena.”

Bundchen wasn’t intimated by James’ frame.

“He doesn’t really make you feel small, even though he is big,” she says in the magazine. “I think my leg is like the size of his shoe.”

The James-Bundchen duo is one of several athlete-model pairings featured in the issue. Others include swimmer Michael Phelps with Caroline Trentini, snowboarder Shaun White with Daria Werbowy; and speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno with Doutzen Kroes.

Lebron has now endorsed products such as Nike and Sprite, hosted the ESPY award show, and been a host on Saturday Night Live. His career's still young and growing, and his star continues to shine brighter and brighter.
