But he is one of the most well-known athletes in the world, no arguing that.


If he is a Basketball player, remember, the US is probably the only country where the sport is really big.

Lebron is huge though, he has a huge presence in China as well

I have no clue as to who the guy in the picture could be.

In fairness, this is a video gaming website, not a whole lot of sports overlap here. But he is one of the most well-known athletes in the world, no arguing that.


That and he's no Jordan.

I'm not denying that, but it's not preposterous to say he's still relatively close in terms of raw popularity.

o rly? How many movies has he starred in? How long has his name been synonymous with a top-selling shoe line? LeBron's not even close. Despite basketball being a US sport, Jordan had strong international name recognition. Meanwhile even in the US, Lebron's name is only mentioned in relation to Jordan's rather than being popular on his own merits.

I'm not saying it's close. I'm not saying Lebron is gaining ground. Hell, I'm not even necessarily saying I believe that Lebron is relatively close. I'm saying, right now, it's not preposterous to say so, if some were to say so.

Also Lebron is going to be in Space Jam 2

Also don't forget MJ has 20 years on him

Also Lebron is #2 on ESPN's top 100 most famous athletes in the world in 2017

That would definitely help his international brand. Might be the main reason why I actually know who Jordan is in the first place.

Media presence outside of his sport. Same goes for all American sporters I can name and recognize probably.
