LeBron James is 29 years old and one of the most recognizable athletes in all of sports. This didn't stop a bartender at hotel bar in Orlando from asking the NBA superstar -- listed at 6'8'' and 250 pounds -- to show some identification in order to get a drink last week.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald wrote that James was surprised to be carded and told the bartender, “Look at my beard!”

Had the hotel staffer wanted further follicle-based proof of James' age, basketball fans would have directed him to the four-time NBA MVP's famously receding hairline.
