This LeBron could totally kick LeBrons ass.

The fancy, misleading headline above and the corresponding picture here probably are good hints that we're not talking about LeBron James the basketball player.

In fact, we're talking about LeBron the jaguar, who is leaving the cozy confines of the Akron Zoo for a new home in Florida.

From the zoo's press release:

It is the moment everyone in Northeast Ohio has been waiting for, but not necessarily the news they were hoping for: LeBron is leaving Northeast Ohio. The biggest surprise may be his new home town. Chicago and New York were likely never considered. LeBron’s new home will be Melbourne, Florida. LeBron, the jaguar that was born at the Akron Zoo in 2009, will be leaving for the Brevard Zoo by mid-June. The Zoo will be hosting a LeBron Appreciation Day on June 5, 2010.

LeBron was the only male in a litter of three born at the Akron Zoo on March 3, 2009.

How cute.
