King James Goes Old Testament, LeBron Hires Rabbi

8/10/2010 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron ... L'Chaim!!!

0810_Lebron_James_Rabbi_ex_TMZ_04
TMZ has obtained this exclusive photo of LeBron James in a business meeting earlier today with Rabbi Yishayahu Yosef Pinto ... a man known around New York as the "Rabbi to the Business Stars."

Sources involved with the meeting tell us LeBron had hired Rabbi Pinto for spiritual guidance for a "big merchandising meeting" that took place on a private yacht somewhere off the coast of NY just hours ago.

Rabbi Pinto -- a 37 year-old-man who speaks only Hebrew -- has met with all sorts of business moguls in the past ... and is considered by some to be a "spiritual guide" who consults on business matters.

We're told LeBron paid in the neighborhood of 6-figures to get Rabbi Pinto to sit in on today's meeting ... in which LeBron heard presentations from several "big time" retail execs. 

It's been a big summer for the Jews -- with Amar'e Stoudemire meeting with rabbis in Israel ... and Shaq learning Hebrew

It's only a matter of time before they start poppin' Manischewitz in the clubs!

Another victim of superstition and indoctrination. There is no Jewish god, no Christian god an no Muslim god. There is no god, none. But all you suckers keep spending your time and money on "holy" men, who will gladly take it. Go ahead, ignore all the contradictions. The fact that there are hundreds of religions, and you believe in none of them (because they're all obviously ridiculous, right?). You just have a blind spot towards your own.

Go ahead and waste your life. All you're really doing is buying yourself a peace of mind, because you don't have to think for yourselves. When you die, you will, or rather: won't see that you're wrong. Because you'll just rot in the ground.

No, we won't. Because we'll be dead, and there's no afterlife. Go ahead, believe your stupid rationalizations, but religion is horribly flawed, and you're either incredibly stupid or willfully ignorant. Not sure which is worse.

This is just another example of an elitest, ignorant, uneducated athlete with too much $$$$$$.

His poor judgement, rediculous antics and public stupidity...he lacks any skill or brains, outside of playing basketball....ugh.

What a bad example for BLK folks.
This fool makes me ashamed to be an educated BLK man in America.

Good job just assuming a ****load of facts about me and my beliefs. It shows that you're perfectly capable of just making **** up and take is as fact.

There is no shred of evidence for your stupid idea of a god, and it's your responsibility to prove him. "Prove that he doesn't exist" is not an acceptable form of logic, you should know that if you weren't borderline retarded. Personal attacks mean nothing. Prove your **** of **** off.

ya - because we all know God is very concerned about the rich becoming richer (probably explains why Africa is in such disarray - who can have time for both matters). Only in American...and Israel (China soon to follow).

Religion isn't something that needs to be proved,its a belief to keep you grounded and keep you focused,Believing in a higher power is more for giving your life meaning and direction which you lack,all your life revolves around is the world you see right now, believing you evolved from a monkey to one day clone your own species,even science cant explain everything happening in this universe,now there denying gravity ever existed,well that shows your existence based on science,shows you lack the moral responsibility religion and brings and your not able to bear that burden which is understandable but don't go on telling people who believe in religion and believe in having a meaning to there life as being borderline retarded ,which begs the question why don't you believe,Man of science or just a man of ignorance, i believe the latter

What a load of bull-hockey. He is spinning as fast as he can to try and repair the reputation hit he took after that ego driven ESPN show about his "decision". He is a jerk.
