WASHINGTON — Venus Williams says LeBron James would look good in a Miami Heat uniform.
Williams spoke at the National Press Club on Wednesday promoting her new book and James was one of the topics she touched on during a question-and-answer session.
The Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., resident endorsed Miami as a new home for James, the prize of this year’s NBA free-agent class.
“I’m from Florida, so Miami certainly is the best place,” Williams said. “I actually have a slide show prepared, if he wants to watch, on why. But I’m sure he’ll make the right decision.”
Dressed in a colorful teal blouse and white skirt for the luncheon, Williams switched to a peach EleVen shirt – part of her own clothing line – and white shorts by early evening, when she was introduced as the newest member of the Washington Kastles of World Team Tennis.
By the time she took the court for a women’s doubles match played in sweltering temperatures near 100 degrees, Williams was attired in a Kastles uniform – blue tennis skirt and a red T-shirt. Williams and Rennae Stubbs beat Martina Hingis and Sarah Borwell of the New York Buzz, 5-3
