Mark Wahlberg Abs-olutely Ecstatic Over LeBron James' L.A. Move

He believes James’ departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers will make it easier for the Celtics – his Boston hometown team – to dominate the Eastern Conference.

Mark Wahlberg brought out a six-pack on Monday to celebrate the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers signing LeBron James.

The 47-year-old "Transformers" star showed off his physique regularly as a Calvin Klein underwear model back in the day. And decades later he still goes shirtless on social media, even getting grilled by Ellen DeGeneres about his stripped-down selfies.

Now it seems the occasion of James' arrival in Hollywood has inspired more torso-baring on Instagram.

Somebody has been doing his planks and crunches.

We know, we know ― Wahlberg is a Massachusetts guy and a big Boston Celtics fan.

So why would he be so thrilled about James that he would strike a pose? He explained that James' departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers would make it easier for the Celtics to dominate the Eastern Conference. (Boston lost to Cleveland in the conference final this year.)

Sounds like an abs-olutely fair analysis to us.
