As seen on .

It's true. King James really is @kingjames on Twitter. Chris Paul (@Oneandonlycp3 ) tweeted out two hours ago:

“Couldn’t convince him to tell me which team he’s goin to but convinced him to join twitter lol…my brother from another mother @KINGJAMES”

CBS Sports  has also confirmed the story.

As if the LeBron free agency frenzy didn’t dominate the news enough, the new Twitter will be sure to garner more gossip and speculation.

He already has 140,000 followers and tweeted out: Hello World, the Real King James is in the Building "Finally". My Brother @oneandonlycp3 gas'd me up to jump on board so I'm here. Haaaa

I fully expect Bill Simmons and his ESPN friends (Jay Mariotti, Dan Le Batard, Mike Wilbon, Tony Kornheiser, Skip Bayless, etc.) to become permanent stalkers.
