LeBron James and Kevin Love enjoyed immense success together as members of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The pair, along with Kyrie Irving, consistently ruled the Eastern Conference and ultimately won one championship.
Although James and Love are on different teams now, the strong bonds forged in Cleveland continue to stand the test of time.
This week, Love took to social media to show off a special gift sent his way by James.

As shown by the engraving on the bottle, clearly James cared enough to customize this gift for Love.
Lobos 1707 is a tequila and mezcal brand invested in by James and Rich Paul. Bottle prices range from $45 to $150.
James first discovered it during a vacation to the Mediterranean, and enjoyed it so much that he felt the need to re-test it once he was back in the United States just to ensure that he wasn’t looking at it with vacation goggles on.

“If it tastes great in Akron, Ohio, then I know it’s the right thing,” James said after the fact. “I had to make sure it wasn’t the boat in Italy that was getting me.”
James’ excellent eye for up-and-coming products is a big reason why he’s almost a billionaire, and there’s no reason to assume that Lobos 1707 will be anything other than an unbridled success.
