    No one’s going to knock LeBron James’ crown off his head, and if someone does, it definitely won’t be a cruise line. Carnival Corp. attempted to trademark “King James,” but once LeBron heard about it and got involved, Carnival quickly dropped its trademark application, according to the Miami Herald. James has embraced the “King James” moniker throughout his time in the NBA, and it’s his handle on both Twitter and Instagram. MORE: 2020 NBA Christmas schedule The original Carinval Corp. application for the “King James” trademark appeared in August 2019. After multiple application changes, the federal government approved the application in July. But it took just more than a week after James got involved for the long application process to go by the wayside. James apparently heard about the trademark application recently.
