LeBron James dressed up as Freddy Krueger to celebrate Halloween this year.

When it comes to Halloween, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James does not mess around.

James went with a classic horror movie villain for his Halloween costume. He dressed up as the absolutely terrifying Freddy Krueger from The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. James had the the hat, the striped sweater, the burnt face prosthetics and of course, the bladed glove with four razor blades attached to it. He went all out on this costume and the result is total nightmare fuel.

Great job by James to do one of the most iconic horror villains justice with his Halloween costume.

While James certainly did his part to celebrate Halloween, keep in mind that the Lakers will be playing a home game vs. the Houston Rockets during prime trick or treating time. The Lakers are 3-3 on the season, but should get above .500 with the rebuilding Rockets coming to town. Anything short of a Lakers’ home victory at Staples Center will leave a bad taste in one’s mouth.

The Lakers have massive expectations this season. They are two years removed from winning an NBA Finals. While they made the NBA playoffs a season ago, they lost to the eventual Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns in the first round. The Lakers are not only expected to contend out of the West this year, but could be an early favorite to win yet another league championship.

Here is to James’ play on Halloween being every bit as terrifying as his Freddy Krueger costume.
