LeBron James wears leaked special edition Liverpool kit ahead of LA Lakers game

LeBron James has collaborated with Liverpool in the last few years

LeBron James has confirmed his latest clothing collaboration with Liverpool after he was seen wearing a special edition kit on arrival to a Los Angeles Lakers NBA game.

Back in 2011, James and business partner Maverick Carter bought a two per cent stake in Liverpool for £4.7 million. In the same year, Fenway Sports Group bought the club for £300 million.

In March 2021, James turned his stake in Liverpool into a one per cent share in FSG’s global empire, as well as the Premier League club, FSG also owns the Boston Red Sox, the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team, 80% of New England Sports Network and half of Roush Fenway Racing.

In the last few weeks, there have been pictures of an apparent special edition Liverpool kit being leaked across different social media platforms.

On Wednesday night, James arrived for LA Lakers’ game against San Antonio Spurs wearing the soon-to-be-released special edition Liverpool kit. Which matched the leaked pictures on social media.

The jersey featured the NBA star’s logo along with red pinstripes on black background.

James also wore Nike Air Max 1 trainers which had his insignia on the heel as well as the Liverpool logo.

Back in November 2021, club chairman Tom Werner confirmed the partnership between James and Liverpool.

He said: "We're doing a product line with LeBron and Liverpool. Nike is creating seven or eight products that connect LeBron with soccer.

"I don't know specifics yet, but they're going to create seven or eight products that rival the connection that Michael Jordan has with Nike."

In June 2022, Forbes revealed James as the first active NBA player to become a billionaire. Throughout his career, the 38-year-old has been named NBA’s most valuable player on four occasions.

James has also represented the United States of America in three Olympics, winning gold in 2008 and 2012.
