It must be nice to be friends with LeBron James.
The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar has demonstrated his generosity in a number of ways, and the most recent beneficiary of the King's hospitality is Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho.
Ronaldinho, one of the leaders of Brazil's 2002 World Cup championship, posted a photo to his Twitter page of one of James' signature watches from his collaboration with Audemars Piguet.

The Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph comes with an 18-karat pink gold case, black ceramic and diamond set push pieces and a hand-stitched gray crocodile strap. James' signature is printed in blue on the sapphire crystal in the back of the watch. All told, the watch retails for around $60,000.
"Anytime I do anything or have a partnership with anyone that has my name on it, I like to have a lot of personal trace in it," James said when the partnership with Audemars Piguet was announced.
Only 600 of these watches were produced, so it's a big deal that James gave one to Ronaldinho. James has expressed his love for soccer before, and he was even at the World Cup final in Brazil. Perhaps this is an early birthday present for the 2005 Ballon d'Or winner, who will turn 35 on March 21.
Ronaldinho has made quite an impression on James and another NBA superstar, Kobe Bryant. Bryant, who met the man nicknamed "Gaúcho" in 2013, told reporters that Ronaldinho was his kids' favorite soccer player.
