Who is Lebresus? Where did he come from? What's up with the halo and the badass beard? Is he any relation to the big J.C.?

We first noticed Lebresus last week. He was spray painted onto a window of the castle-sized Sports Authority at 10th and Broadway, catty-corner to our office. When we mentioned that we'd spotted him, a few of our eagle-eyed friends said they'd seen Lebresus too, in other spots around Capitol Hill.

I mean, LeBron's a great basketball player and everything, but can he turn the Gatorade to wine? If you know, let us in on the secret.

In the meantime, here is Lebresus's close-up.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
