Rumors and speculations be gone for the King is finally here! After a morning full of claims and counterclaims, it is finally official, LeBron James is now part of the Twitter community! At the urging of New Orleans Hornets Chris Paul, the #23 (and soon to be #6) throws in the towel today and join the micro-blog site. Already, the account has 101,272 Followers and filed his first update 30-minutes ago:

Hello World, the Real King James is in the Building “Finally”. My Brother @oneandonlycp3 gas’d me up to jump on board so I’m here. Haaaa

Seen by many athletes as a vehicle to connect directly with their fans and supporters, there is a growing consensus that King James will announce his next team via Twitter, like how Lance Armstrong announced his retirement a few weeks back. To follow LeBron James on Twitter, simply add @KingJames to follow on your account.

Even one tweet can make you look stupid. Why is "Finally" in quotes? Maybe they belong around 'building'.

Who would want to follow Lebron on twitter when he has only said one thing the entire time? Isn't the whole point of following a person on twitter to get updates from them? Lebron James is way over hyped right now, as least Kobe Bryant has 5 rings and Lebron has 0, also Lebron has nothing to show for the entire time he has been in the NBA
