LeBron and Rabbi Pinto, holding hands.(TMZ)

Capping off a summer of brilliant PR moves, LeBron James has hired Rabbi Yishayahu Yosef Pinto, a Hebrew-only-speaking, 37-year-old rabbi-to-the-minor-stars who also may be a sketchy businessman who may also have been somewhat involved in the suspicious death of a wealthy Bobover Hasid real-estate maven. Apparently James paid Pinto six figures for “spiritual guidance” during a merchandising meeting. This is sort of like the whole Amar’e Stoudemire thing, except without the charm and good intentions. Nice Yankees shirt, by the way.

Rabbi Pinto says:

Rabbi Pinto lives in an apartment worth more than Lebrons home, and will milk this meeting to make more than Lebron does. How could he go for this BS ?
