LeBron James removes shorts, throws them into crowd in Taiwan (Video)

When LeBron James announced his return to Cleveland earlier this month, the NBA world saw a stripped-down version of the four-time MVP — an NBA superstar humbled by one horrible Decision. LeBron also treated his Taiwanese fans to a new stripped-down side of himself, only this time he took it quite literally.

In a video taken during his recent publicity tour across Asia — uncovered by Pro Basketball Talk — a shirtless James can be seen removing his hat, shoes and shorts as a man screams "everybody witness" in front of a large crowd. We finally have our answer to the age-old boxers or briefs question: boxer briefs. 

Perhaps this is a precursor to a new Be Like Magic Mike advertising campaign. And scene.

Speaking of scenes, James appears to be Stateside again, posting a picture with Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader on his Instagram account. The two will co-star in "Trainwreck," a Judd Apatow project that began filming in New York City last month. Cue Stefon describing this recent scene in Taiwan.

If his Asian tour was any indication, the 30,000 fans who purchased tickets to the Welcome Home LeBron Community Rally in Akron on Aug. 8 ought to be in for a surprise. Used socks for everyone.
