James is the world’s greatest basketball player and a celebrity outside of the hoops, given his philanthropic and commercial efforts. At 36, the eponymous “Washed King” is still in contention to win another NBA championship as the best player in the league.
Any basketball fan who recognizes the aging process knows how committed LeBron is to taking care of his body and perfecting his craft. Apparently this extends to gaming as well – as the King asked for gaming chair recommendations.
With teammates like Dennis Schroder and Anthony Davis already passionate about players, and his son Bronny James already inducted into FaZe ClanLeBron’s connection to the game is obvious. Now that he’s trying to raise the bar and get more involved, the gaming world seems very ready to guide him.
Gaming chair embodied by Herman Miller – Trust

Bron’s initial question was simple: “Who makes the best and most comfortable gaming chair?” And then the four-time NBA MVP, 17-time All-Star made it clear that the chair would indeed be for him (all 6’9 ”, 250 pounds from him).
TimTheTatMan, Warzone, and the extraordinary Twitch variety streamer, immediately replaced his Herman Miller sponsorship and recommended the “Embody” chair. Based on the “Aeron” chair, which occupies a place in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, it is probably a suggestion of quality with good ergonomics.
But Minecraft YouTuber Dream took things in a different direction. Like hundreds of users who responded with amazement that the biggest star in the NBA is an avid gamer, Dream simply took the opportunity to talk shop with the King of Hops.

Likewise, Twitch streamer and Dream SMP Minecraft creator Tommyinnit thought it was a great time to talk to Bron about his favorite game.

While it’s unclear whether the “basketball maker” will capitalize on Dream and Tommy’s requests to get involved in the world of Minecraft, it’s clear that the gaming world is welcoming the Los Angeles Lakers superstar.
When LeBron installs his new gaming chair, we’ll update this part. And who knows, maybe he’ll have joined his son on FaZe Clan by then and started streaming on Twitch. He said he wanted to play on the same team as Bronny, after all.
