Those who follow LeBron James on Twitter or Instagram may have noticed that the NBA's best player has developed a strong interest in obtaining the WWE Championship belt.

After James noticed Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy donning the belt to represent his NFL rushing yards title, the four-time NBA MVP and longtime WWE fan asked aloud where he could acquire his own belt.


Before long James got one sent to him from none other than The Rock himself.


Apparently not satisfied with just one belt, James had an accessory ordered for each of his teammates. The Heat posed with their new belts on Wednesday:

James posted a photo to Instagram along with this caption:

"Always wanted to be the WWE Heavyweight World Champion so today I surprised my teammates with their own for their collection. And by the way it's a Great time to be a @WWE fan with the launch of #WWENetwork #LoveMyTeammates #WWEStandOutAsAKid #StriveForGreatnessFollowing"

Normally such a gesture might be viewed as cocky, but in the Heat's defense, they are two-time defending NBA champions. So if anyone in the league deserves belts, it's LeBron and his teammates.

LeBron has been a longtime wrestling fan, who has talked about his special appreciation for Ric Flair.
