Fans of legendary athlete Florence Griffith Joyner, known as FloJo, have taken to social media to educate younger audiences about her lasting legacy, especially in the realm of fashion.

This comes after NBA superstar LeBron James was seen sporting a unique outfit reminiscent of FloJo’s iconic style.

In a recent video posted by the Los Angeles Lakers on X, formerly Twitter, LeBron is seen practicing his basketball skills, wearing slacks on only one leg.

While some fans speculated that LeBron took inspiration from LSU’s Angel Reese, who is known for her bold fashion choices, FloJo’s fans were quick to remind everyone of the true originator of this look.

Florence Griffith Joyner, a three-time Olympic gold medalist in track and field, was known for her eye-catching leotards and innovative fashion sense.

Her fans were adamant that LeBron’s outfit was a nod to FloJo’s iconic style from the late 1980s.

Fans were quick to correct the newcomers

Fans took to social media to praise LeBron for paying homage to the legendary athlete.

Twitter user Jodi Mersel Dunkel posted a side-by-side comparison of LeBron and FloJo, emphasizing that Florence Griffith Joyner was the true pioneer of this fashion trend.

There was someone who remembered that A’Ja Wilson was already wearing this style before Reese, but Griffith Joyner fans were quick to correct them: “They all stole it from FloJo!” Another fan reminded everyone to “respect the Goat” and acknowledge FloJo’s status as one of the greatest track and field athletes ever.

FloJo’s legacy will not be forgotten

LeBron and his Los Angeles Lakers are in the final stretch of the NBA regular season. At the same time, Reese is preparing for the 2024 WNBA Draft, and Wilson is in full preseason for the start of the new season of women’s professional basketball.

As LeBron continues to make waves both on and off the court, his fashion choices are clearly making an impact. However, fans are quick to ensure that the influence of trailblazers like Florence Griffith Joyner is not forgotten, especially when it comes to setting trends in sports fashion.
