LeBron James sings along with Marvin Gaye while getting back on defense

Wednesday December 30th, 2015

On Tuesday night basketball fans learned that LeBron James can not only dominate a basketball game, he can do it while providing some backup vocals for the great Marvin Gaye.

The two-time NBA champ belted out a few bars of Gaye‘s hit “Let‘s Get It On” as the Cavaliers got back on defense while taking down the Nuggets in Denver.

James was likely in a good mood thanks to his impressive stat line for the game, putting up 34 points while making 13 of his 24 field goal attempts.

The four-time MVP has shown off his pipes before, posting a video of himself singing along with some Mary J. Blige on the radio last season.
