WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — It hasn’t been two months since the conclusion of the 2014 NBA Finals, and LeBron James looks to have shed a bunch of weight this summer.
James, who’s largely remained out of the public spotlight since announcing his return to Cleveland on July 11 — admitting he’d have no press conferences following his decisive letter in Sports Illustrated — tweeted an Instagram photo Monday afternoon, displaying his stunning recent weight loss.

The cheeks. It’s all in the cheeks.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reports the dramatic weight loss to be directly tied to James deciding to “cut carbs this summer.”
