LeBron James' Purse From Game 1 Cost $41,000

LeBron James arrives at a game wearing shorts.

in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on May 31, 2018 in Oakland, California.

Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals was historic in many ways. We had an uber-rare foul call reversal after instant replay. We had a devastating free throw miss by George Hill. We had the mental blunder of the century by J.R. Smith. We had a scuffle in overtime that started after somewhat of a phantom flagrant foul. Oh, and we had the worst pregame/postgame outfit of all-time.

LeBron James had one of the best games of his life, but what he wore before and after the contest was nothing short of offensive. Apparently, the whole outfit cost $46,000 too.

How? According to Yahoo, the majority of his outfit - the suit, sunglasses, shoes, accessories etc. all cost about $5,000. The other $41,000?

That comes from the Mr. Thom bag that he was wearing. It's made of alligator skin, and it retails for $41,000 online. Seriously.

Suits with shorts, as most of the world would agree, are a big no-no. That said, NBA players love to push the boundaries when it comes to fashion.

LeBron's outfit, for a number of reasons, went viral on Thursday night. It'll be interesting to see what he wears for Game 2.

Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals will come on Sunday night. The Cavs will need a win to even the series at one game apiece.
