Jersey Monday: LeBron James

Normally the Pro Bowl would be the week after the Super Bowl, but this year they decided to play that game two weeks early, and now there’s no football at all to be watched until September (preseason football doesn’t count).

So what will you do on Sunday (assuming you don’t want to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day, which I don’t). Well, you can catch the 2010 NBA All-Star Game.

So in honor of that game, let’s shift into NBA mode on Jersey Monday. This week’s jersey is the my LeBron James 2009 Eastern Conference All-Stars jersey. Of the five LeBron all-star jerseys I own, this is the only authentic. It’s actually a very nice jersey, but there’s something about basketball jerseys that makes me prefer the swingman construction to the authentic construction, at least if I’m going to be wearing them.

At some point, I’l buy the 2010 all-star LeBron jersey to add to my collection, but considering the authentics are $299 on this year, I think I’ll stick to the swingman.

Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 150 of them, that could be awhile.
