Gurley, Goff become latest members of LeBron's chosen 23

LeBron James is the most powerful athlete in the Los Angeles ecosystem, and he's showing love to his peers before debuting in the famed purple and gold.

James gifted replica Lakers jerseys with his name and number to 23 fans across the Los Angeles area, a possible connection to his famed No. 23.

Throughout the day, the Lakers began tagging the recipients as the #ChosenFew on social media, a likely play on James' moniker "The Chosen One" given to him when he was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated as a high school junior.

The gesture brought smiles to the faces of Rams quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley.

Lakers controlling owner Jeanie Buss also delivered jerseys to Dodgers stars Kenley Jansen and Yasiel Puig earlier in the week.
