Monday marked LeBron James's 35th birthday and unsurprisingly the basketball icon celebrated in style. The Los Angeles Lakers star, his wife, and his crew reportedly ran around Hollywood having the time of their lives. It's said that they all visited Hollywood's legendary Sunset Tower luxury hotel before making their way over to Crazy Girls strip club. Everyone drank—and danced—the night away as they donned fancy eveningwear and judging by the photos, they all enjoyed themselves greatly.
