LeBron James has joined Twitter. Check out his official channel @KingJames. Apparently, his buddy Chris Paul convinced LBJ to join the social media fun. He had been reluctant to join Twitter or Facebook and had even joked in the past about how other athletes discussed their personal lives online. At this moment, in less than 24 hours, he’s surpassed 200,000 followers. James has yet to announce where he’ll play next season, a decision that could affect the future of several franchises and the city of Cleveland’s economy. Apparently, he will announce his future NBA plans during a one-hour special on ESPN network at 9 p.m Thursday. It is not known which team James will join or where the announcement will take place. Finally, James was late for the second day of his Skills Academy on Tuesday, but he did play along several Cavaliers teammates. He was spotted wearing an all black colorway of the upcoming Nike Air Max LeBron VIII.
