Fan gets LeBron’s face tattooed on his leg

Jul 25, 2011, 10:23 AM EDT


I get why one would be a fan of LeBron James — he has been blessed with physical gifts to play basketball like few others. He has the size and strength of Karl Malone, but he’s quicker than most of the point guards in the league. He can play inside or out, he can do just about anything he wants on the court.

But one can go a little too far with their adoration of the man.

That picture to the right is the calf of Nathan Blackhall of South Florida (that’s what he calls himself on his twitter account, anyway). He got LeBron’s face tattooed on his leg, something not even Pat Riley would have done. He sent it to LeBron who retweeted it saying “Oh damn! That’s how u feel. I appreciate the love.”

Um, okay.

Not my leg, I don’t have to wear it around every day. This is a free country. He has every right to do this and if it makes him happy, if he likes it, then go for it. He follows up on twitter saying LeBron is his basketball idol and he is a fan of the man no matter what. Live and let live people.

The question of the day: Would you rather have LeBron’s face on your leg, The Thunder logo on your thighs or Dirk’s face on your behind? Personally, I will choose D) None of the above.

    Nathan Blackhall is better known by his rapper name Mo’ Ron.

    With a picture like that, he is begging for a shark to come bite his leg.

    He should have gotten it tattooed across his ass to make it more life like.

      For the record, the system picked this up as a spam comment because of the language, that’s why it was slow to appear.

    He can get Charlie Brown on the other leg and have a matched set of historic losers.

    His other leg features a Cubs tattoo.

    LeFraud is Overrated. Also he doesn’t have a outside jump shot that he can hit on a regular basis, there for he wouldn’t be able to be an outside player. And the tat is super gay. A tinker bell tat would be less gay.

    He’ll be running in circles in the fourth quarter ’cause his leg won’t work now!

    Kurt, I don’t get your comment about the Thunder and Dirk’s face?? Are these actual tatts (didn’t click on the links), or do you really have a crush on Lebron like everyone accuses you of? Every article you write is always biased in his favor. I smell a ratt here. . .
