LeBron James Hires Rabbi Pinto

In shul this morning I heard about a big shvartze basketball player who hired a rabbi as a business consultant and how there was a photo of them on a yacht.

Here we go on tmz.com:

TMZ has obtained this exclusive photo of LeBron James in a business meeting earlier today with Rabbi Yishayahu Yosef Pinto … a man known around New York as the “Rabbi to the Business Stars.”

Sources involved with the meeting tell us LeBron had hired Rabbi Pinto for spiritual guidance for a “big merchandising meeting” that took place on a private yacht somewhere off the coast of NY just hours ago.

Rabbi Pinto — a 37 year-old-man who speaks only Hebrew — has met with all sorts of business moguls in the past … and is considered by some to be a “spiritual guide” who consults on business matters.

We’re told LeBron paid in the neighborhood of 6-figures to get Rabbi Pinto to sit in on today’s meeting … in which LeBron heard presentations from several “big time” retail execs.

It’s been a big summer for the Jews — with Amar’e Stoudemire meeting with rabbis in Israel … and Shaq learning Hebrew.

LUKE SAYS: Is this Rabbi Pinto a relative of the rabbis of the Pinto shul on Pico Blvd?
