Miami Heat superstar, LeBron James, tweeted out his unusual post-practice outfit to his millions of followers on Friday.
Been in the weight room too much today getting my Incredible Hulk on! Hahaha. Treatment time in Indy. S/O… instagr.am/p/VKx2leiTOL/

What James is actually wearing is a wrapping system designed to improve oxygen and blood flow to muscles after workouts or injuries.
James is the clear leader of the Heat while leading his team in rebounds, steals and assists.
LeBron James stays fresh after workout
After a long and 2012 season that included a championship and an Olympic gold medal, James found a way to keep his body fresh without doing anything illegal.
The Heat were able to bounce back from a hard fought but disappointing loss to Boston in double overtime by easily defeating the Brooklyn Nets.
James called it a “statement” game.
The NBA could take James’ example by proving there are other methods to a speedy recovery without doing anything illegal.
Apart from crazy workout outfits, James has been questioned about his current contract situation.
The Heat are over the luxary tax and it might be difficult to keep James in Miami.
“What I do on the floor shows my value. At the end of the day, I don’t think my value on the floor can really be compensated for, anyways, because of the (collective bargaining agreement),” James said Friday. “If you want the truth. If this was baseball, it’d be up, I mean way up there,” according to ESPN.
James isn’t even the highest paid athlete in the NBA and it doesn’t concern him one bit.
The Associated Press reported James is more worried about winning games than getting a max contract.
Should Heat fans be worried?
