LeBron James couldn't handle Charlie Blackmon's luscious locks
LeBron James is a busy guy. Outside of the occasional jaunt to nearby Progressive Field to watch the Indians in the playoffs, he probably doesn't get much of a chance to watch too much baseball between all the work he puts into getting the Cleveland Cavaliers back to the NBA Finals.
It wouldn't be a shock if James had never seen the Rockies' Charlie Blackmon before, especially since the Rockies rarely visit Cleveland. Blackmon is serving ESPN as a guest analyst in the postseason, though, allowing him to get spiffy while still sporting his iconic beard.
So, when James saw a picture on Twitter of Blackmon in the ESPN studio, accompanied by an eerily accurate description of the outfielder's looks, he lost it:

The Rockies took it in stride, tweeting a GIF to James of Blackmon showing off that wild hair:
Even a king has to give it up for that.
Swag on 1,000!!! 🚀 https://t.co/d6PJiyqGTu- LeBron James (@KingJames) October 25, 2017
Blackmon himself was highly amused by the superstar's kudos.
It's different seeing Blackmon outside of a baseball uniform, but thanks to his dutiful attention to the beard, it's as stylish as ever.
