What is Lebron James doing in the Philippines?!
Basketball fans were sent abuzz yesterday after a certain Joshua Barraca discovered the long-lost sibling of the NBA star. While in a jeepney, the netizen was shocked to see that sitting just right beside him was his idol, nay, Lebron’s doppelganger. He then sneaked a few snapshots just as the passenger was sleeping.
“Nakatabi ko si idol sa jeep kanina. Akala ko ba Lakers ka na?”
The joke was a reference to Lebron’s decision to join the Los Angeles Lakers just a few weeks ago. Previously, he has played for Cleveland Cavaliers, his original team, then for Miami Heat, where he stayed for a short four years.

Aside from observations about his eerily familiar looks, many took note that the guy was wearing Adidas clothing in the comments section. Pretty ironic, as Lebron is a known ambassador of Nike for how many years now. He even has his own line, the Lebron James Collection, complete with all-things basketball: caps, shirts, and the most in-demand, shoes.
