Miami Heat forward LeBron James celebrated his 26th birthday with a ridiculous cake. Posted by Ben Golliver.

Critics have called Miami Heat forward LeBron James a selfish, oversized child, so it only makes sense that his 26th birthday party, which drew the likes of filmmaker Spike Lee and rapper Drake, came complete with a ridiculously oversized and self-reverential birthday cake, as noted in this morning's Shootaround.

Here's a look at the King-themed red, gold and white cake, which appears to be at least five layers, courtesy of James' Twitter feed.   


The cake sports "LJ," James' initials, and is topped with a crown to complete the "King" theme that seems to follow James everywhere he goes.

The cake was part of the party that was hyped up by a slideshow presentation that promised "a royal themed [party] fitting for a birthday celebration of a king, channeling an ambiance of extravagant court life" that would draw an "A-List crowd of multicultural, savvy trendsetters, and jetsetters that reinvent and set the tone for a chic lifestyle."

Despite, or perhaps because of, the absurd cake, it sounds like James enjoyed himself. "Wanna thank all my family, friends and fans for the B-day S/O's today," James tweeted. "Love all u guys. Its gonna be another great year! Yes Sir!"

Hopefully, 2011 is a Decision-free year for all.

LeBron James had an absurd birthday cake

I don't think he has changed at all his entire time in the Association, he's still the same tool he has been the whole time.

Also, you have to be "up there" before you can fall. Up until this year all I heard was how he is top 5 all-time, shoe in for the hall, best player in the game. Now nothing has changed except his uniform (he still hasn't won a ring, just like lasrt year, and the year before, and the year before...) but now it's all about him having to prove himself. Where was all this "level headed thinking" last year?

The "Self Proclaimed King!"  hahahaCool

James has turned into the biggest tool in the NBA.  Is there any player that has had a harder fall than James?  Nobody  respects this guy anymore.  Kinda sad.
