LeBron James took to his official Instagram account this weekend to praise an artist who has created a fairly spectacular portrait of the Cavaliers star using nothing but the Nike swoosh.
The piece, which can be seen via this link, was created by German artist Andy Gellenberg and drew praise from the Cleveland Cavaliers' returning superstar:
"S/O German artist Andy Gellenberg on this mock up of me made by all Nike swoosh. It's crazy!! I need one for my house. Find this guy for me Asap!! #Dope #LoveArt #StriveForGreatness," read the message from James.
- LeBron James makes one simple but expensive request of NBA team
- Could Anthony Davis really take LeBron James' place in near future?
- Sports stars give their verdict on basketball's biggest question
It certainly goes down as one of the most unique interpretations of LeBron James we have ever seen, although that red Nike swoosh headband may have to see a color change when James makes his long-awaited first appearance of his second coming at the Cavs.
The portrait is not an official piece of Nike advertising but judging by the reception it has received - from fans and LeBron himself - we wouldn't be surprised if the big wigs at the sporting giant were quick to get an official poster out.
LeBron James wasn't the only one to get the Nike treatment either with Gellenberg also creating an individual portraits of Tiger Woods in the same style.
