LeBron James Poses With Fanatic Showing Off Crazy LeBron Tattoo (Pic)

Fan, LeBron James

At Dime, we’re all about the ink, but tattoos are a pretty crazy way to express your fanaticism for an athlete you’ll probably never meet.

But Dwight is almost always affable to fans off the court, and never hesitates to sign an autograph or pose for a picture — like he’s doing in the photograph with a young fan in the photo above. A group of girls thought they had run into nice guy D-12 at the store earlier this week, describing him on Twitter as “nice, cool, HUMBLE and had us laughing too!!!” Turns out, it was an impostor.
