LeBron James as King Kong?

This has been blogged about elsewhere quite a bit over the last couple of weeks. Was Annie Leibowitz invoking King Kong when she shot this photo of LeBron James and Gisele for the cover of Vogue or is it just an innocent representation of a popular athlete and a supermodel? I have my own ideas, but I'm curious what other people think.


Does your impression change when you see this?


And in case you were wondering, the rest of the athlete/model pairings from that issue are available here. The rest don't seem quite as loaded. I wonder why.
