LeBron James is a lot of things. He’s the best player in the NBA, a future Hall of Famer, a two-time NBA Champion, a television producer and a global spokesman. He’s also now a phone app as the good folks at Samsunghave created an app about everyone’s favorite Miami Heat player.

The app, titled ‘LeBron’, gives fans an in-depth look at the Heat star’s life on the court and off the court as he practices, spends time with his family and betters his life outside of basketball. ‘LeBron’ is available via Google Play, and works for the Galaxy S 5, Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note 3, and Galaxy Note II.

Here’s a quick rundown of the features you get on the LeBron App:

1.)    Athlete: Photos and videos of his workouts, daily life as an athlete including his routine for getting ready for games, post-game remarks and more

2.)    NBA Playoffs: LeBron’s season and career highlights along with live scores from the Heat’s playoff games

3.)    Style: Photos and videos of his classic style, sneakers of the day, off-the-court looks, a radio that plays his favorite songs and more

4.)    Journey: Insight into what fuels LeBron off the court including, his charitable work with his Foundation, as well as his home life with his wife and kids

This isn’t the most necessary app in the world, but Michael Jordan was never an app and still isn’t an app so LeBron is paving new territory with this latest stint.
