LeBron James’ Summer League shorts on Sunday priced at $500 and it’s already sold out
LeBron James made his first public appearance as a new member of the Los Angeles Lakers at the Thomas and Mack Center to show support for the Josh Hart-led Summer League crew who made it to the third round of the playoffs.
The former Cleveland Cavaliers star not only drew attention for his reunion with coach Tyronn Lue but also for repping a pair of Just Don Lakers shorts with the familiar color scheme but with the web store’s patented design of having the logo strewn across the front.
Despite costing $500 a piece, the clothing immediately went out of stock.

This is standard fare for the four-time NBA MVP whose memorabilia are highly sought after pieces with his game-worn 2018 NBA All-Star jersey reaching $22,000 in just a few days after the auction started, and a torn season opener jersey even fetching $40,000 at one point.
James, however, has been unusually quiet since signing with the Lakers with any interviews or direct quotes from the three-time NBA champion. And despite no-showing a hyped appearance on a pizza party at Blaze Pizza, he’s been very active immersing himself in Hollywood such as dining with Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Pacino or meeting with Paramount officials to discuss a potential comedy film.
But as far as the Lakers go, James is keeping a close eye on the Summer League squad. Although only four are guaranteed to make the regular season roster, call ups are possible for players that impress during the tournament and may be signed to two-way contracts, and “The King” would likely want a front row seat to the youngsters that would carry the franchise when he eventually walks into the sunset.
