A word of advice: if you're playing against LeBron James and you're not a close friend, do not wear his signature shoe.

In a interview with GQ, LeBron said that he thinks he has a mental edge over opposing players who step on the court against him wearing LeBrons and its a lesson he said he learned a kid from Michael Jordan.

"When I was a kid and I used to see guys wear MJ's shoes when they played against MJ I'm like, 'Oh, MJ got a littlemental edge over those guys," James said in the interview. "So, for me, now being in that MJ class, if he's not a real brother of mine, if you're just a guy that's just like, you actually just go to Foot Locker or somewhere, you just get a pair of 'Brons and you want to wear 'em on a Tuesday night vs. me? I'ma bust your ass. Straight up."
