You might recall that, back during his 2002-03 school year, LeBron James(notes) was seen driving around in a massive Hummer that (with add-ons) likely cost well over $50,000. You might recall wondering just how James, even with his eventual status as the top overall NBA draft pick in 2003, could afford that monstrosity of a vehicle. You might also recall this video, from CNN:
Ever wonder if James still tooled around in that (sorry, LeBron, but it's true) tool-mobile? Wonder no more, thanks to Twitter, via Scott from Waiting For Next Year. It's a cute back and forth between Ohio-based AP reporter Tom Withers, and James:
So there you go. Perhaps, in the right hands, Hummers are a good long-term investment.
