Lebron James took to Instagram to share a photograph that left many questioning if he was a part of a secret society.
James, 28-year-old Miami Heat forward, posted an image of himself at LIV nightclub in Miami while wearing a shirt with a number of triangles with eyes placed inside of them. The symbol is associated with what many believe is a secret society called the Illuminati.
After James posted the image, a number of people speculated about his involvement in a secret society.
"I mean.. If that shirt isn't illuminati.. I don't know what is @KingJames," one person tweeted to the basketball star.
Another individual tweeted the same sentiments saying, "Look at @KingJames most recent Instagram pic and tell me he isn't part of the Illuminati."
Other people attempted to figure out why James would possibly involve himself in a secret society.
"Lebron James had a rough childhood so he traded his soul to theIlluminati to be rich and famous. #makessense," the person tweeted.
However, some people came to the defense of the Miami Heat forward.
"It's just a shirt people...a secret society such as, #illuminati are just that...'SECRET SOCIETY,'" the person tweeted. "They don't advertise."
Instead of take part in the debate, James simply captioned his photograph by writing, "with my bro @fwalker03. LIV on Sunday's #rollwiththewinners."
More than speculation about being a member of a secret society, James seemed to be bothered by the recent comparison between himself and NBA hall-of-famer Michael Jordan. The Twitter account for daily sports news television show SportsCenter, decided to pose the question, "Who wins a game of 1-on-1 in their prime: MJ or LeBron?"
After encouraging fans to vote on the answer, SportsCenter revealed that 66 percent of basketball fans that participated in the vote believed that Jordan would best James during his prime. However, James did not seem amused by the comparisons.
"I'm not MJ, I'm LJ," James tweeted earlier this month.
