If you’ve followed LeBron James closely throughout his career, you know his appearance has changed considerably. And, as you might expect, the digital version of “The King” has undergone quite the evolution as well.
James’ first video-game appearance came in “NBA Shootout 2004” and, to be blunt, he looked horrendous. Fast forward 13 years and the visual difference between the real James and the one balling inside your Xbox One practically is nonexistent.
To see just how much pixel-Bron has transformed over this years, watch this video, which was put together by Hoops Hype:
As bad as James looks in “Shootout 2004,” that Stephen Jackson-Darius Miles hybrid from “NBA Live 14” really is an abomination.
Personally, we can’t wait to see how “The King’s” new look manifests in the upcoming “NBA 2K18.”
