LeBron James’ $800,000 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Is More GOATED Than His Entire NBA Career

LeBron James’ appearance at the Cavaliers vs. Celtics game has sparked rumours of a huge trade at the end of the season, with the former Cleveland star able to opt out of his current LA Lakers contract in the summer. But whilst the rumour mill was swirling about James’ future, we were more concerned by the AP on his wrist.

LeBron James will be remembered for a number of incredible achievements in the world of sports, with an illustrious career spanning more than three decades at the top of the NBA.

From his four NBA Championships with the Miami Heat (2012, 2013), Cleveland Cavaliers (2016) and Los Angeles Lakers (2020) to Olympic Gold medals with Team USA, when all is said and done, James will go down in history as one of the greatest to ever do it… so it’s only fitting he has the watch collection suitable for his eternal GOAT status.
