LeBron James Pisses Off Fellow NYC Subway Rider

Thanks to an infamous silent gesture from his business partner Maverick Carter, we know that LeBron James’s relationship with Nike is worth over one billion dollars. So how many unlimited Metrocards can he afford?

On Monday in New York the answer was, “Enough.” With dropping temperatures and a burning desire to feel like true commuting New Yorkers, several members of the Cleveland Cavaliers (including Dwyane Wade, as well as former Knicks players J.R. Smith and Channing Frye) got on the NYC subway, which LeBron James promised would get them to their destination over 30 minutes faster than the team bus would. “It was either a 45-minute bus ride or a six-minute train ride,” said LeBron to teammate Kyle Korver, bursting with enthusiasm like a kid at M&M World. “So we decided to hop on the train with the squad.”

In those six minutes, James managed to make some friends and elicit some laughs from Frye and Wade, but he also incensed the rider sitting directly next to him. At one point, James turned his phone to his neighbor, who shoved his hand towards the camera, clearly indicating that no matter how many cool points it would eventually earn him, he had no intention of ending up on anyone’s social feed. Sorry bud, you still stole the day.

But if James was really that obsessed with the MTA, maybe he wouldn’t have turned down two opportunities to play for the Knicks in 2010 and 2014. He and the Cavs face-off against the Big Apple’s troubled-but-promising franchise Monday night at Madison Square Garden.

Surely, by then, the jokes will be over.
