LeBron James Announces a Soda: Already Selling on eBay for $20

If you want to know what being a Miami Heat star tastes like, look no further than your refrigerator. LeBron James now has his very own soda.

King James and Coca-Cola announced the launch of Sprite 6 Mix, a limited-edition Sprite that combines the traditional lemon-lime beverage with a twist of cherry and orange flavors.

According to Coca-Cola, the flavor was developed by the Miami Heat player himself, proving once and for all the man's got taste.

Sprite 6 Mix is available in 19.2-ounce cans that resemble energy drinks and 20-ounce bottles and can be found at food stores and Family Dollar locations. We're not sure how long Sprite 6 Mix will be around, but it's already turning out to be a collectible, with a bottle of the beverage selling on eBay for $20.

Fans of James can also win music downloads, jerseys, and gift cards by entering special codes found on bottle caps.
