Savvy businessman that he is, he understands the importance of a diverse portfolio.
Building an empire off basketball gifts alone isn't easy, even if they're some of the best that hoop heads have ever seen. So James has always kept more eggs in his basket and enough fine threads in his closet to own any red carpet.
