Over the weekend, some began calling for NBA player LeBron James to consider becoming a weatherman when he moves on from basketball someday. Why? Because the National Weather Service is already taking tips from him.
The Miami Heat forward posted photos on his Instagram account — kingjames — with the caption “Miami ain’t always sunshine!” The photos show several inches of water flooding the road.
“Mother nature ain’t nothing to mess with,” the caption continued. “Rain rain go away, come back another day!”
It wasn’t long after this note was posted on Twitter that the National Weather Service issued their own alert Saturday, crediting James for the tip.
Although some in the comments of James’ Instagram photos discuss his potential in news or weather reporting, James seems to be doing alright on the court at the moment. He went on to score 24 points Sunday, helping his team beat the Chicago Bulls 105-93.
James made his first seven shots, one of them a dunk off a bounce pass by Chalmers to give Miami a 46-31 lead midway through the second quarter.
Miami is at Cleveland on Monday, with Wade, Udonis Haslem and Shane Battier not even making the trip. James said he would be a game-time decision Monday, but “leaning toward” not playing against his former team.
