Who/what is Lebresus? Is he Jesus's long lost cousin? A relation of LeBron James?

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.
