Perhaps you’ve noticed, but a lot of people have referenced “Nature Boy” Ric Flair in the last few years. You can now add LeBron James to that list. Speaking with The Post Game, the Miami Heat star credits the former NWA, WCW, and WWF heavyweight champion as one of the first entertainers to display “swag.” Yeah, people are still using the word. Stop it. It’s not like folks know what other term to use yet.
In any event, here’s what LeBron had to say about the Nature Boy:
“When I was a kid, I loved wrestling,” James said. “He was one of the guys I loved, too. I think he’s one of the creators of what we call swag these days with the Rolexes and the stretch limos and all the girls and all that stuff. He’s one of the creators of swag.”
