Crowns infer power, but there’s something about the glint of a golden belt that King James cannot resist.

Judging by his tweets, the Miami Heat star was watching the Philadelphia Eagles play the Dallas Cowboys Sunday and went green with envy when he saw LeSean McCoy display his new hardware.

The Rock continues to insist that The King can have his belt. Here is a tweet illustrating how greatness can coincide with generosity.


Original Text  

The article in question was McCoy’s “rushing title” belt, which the Eagles running back wore during a postgame interview with NBC’s Michelle Tafoya.

According to Chris Chase of For The Win, McCoy called the belt a gift from a friend.

“It’s a joke. My friend, he’s from Texas, he told me he was going to give me the rushing title belt if we won the game, so here it is right here.”

The belt was a nice touch for McCoy, who managed to become the 2013 NFL regular-season rushing champ despite his team’s struggles early on. 

Somewhere in Denver, LeBron James saw McCoy’s belt and his mind screamed: “WANT!”

LeBron wants a real championship belt—not some plastic one. But where can he find such an article? 

As it happened, pro wrestling legends Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena heard the King’s wish and tweeted that they were more than ready to help him out.

Your wish is their command, LeBron. Fittingly enough, the Miami Heat star turns 29 Monday and could potentially receive a championship belt from a wrestling legend as a birthday gift.

Get ready, NBA fans. If LeBron wins MVP again, we might all have to suffer a gaudy, discount double-checking dance on the hardwood. Apply polarized lenses to your face as warranted.
