Links: LeBron And Melo In Da Club (Macau Edition!)

Don’t pass out when Team USA’s around…

by Lang Whitaker

Last summer I did a post about Baron Davis keeping it real while in China for Yao Ming’s charity game, thanks to some photos from an alert Linkstigator. (Baron, as it turned out, handled it gracefully.) And once again, with Team USA in China for the Olympics, our readers in Asia have come through for us.

Reader Joey writes…

Looong time! Thought you might like this. One of my boys in HK attended the game in Macau and was partying at the same spot as King James and Melo. Unfortunately for my friend, he decided to be a lightweight and pass out IN DA CLUB. Here are some fuzzy camera phone pictures of LeBron bustin’ a gut and Melo embarrassing my passed out friend — completely clueless…

Thanks, Joey. Cell phone pictures below, so they’re not the best quality. Would be awesome if you could see Melo trying to put dude’s hand in a pan of lukewarm water. But at least the Redeem Team didn’t try and pull a Reggie Love on my man who is out cold…

    Good to see LeBron is keeping his neck warm.

    Is that Hipster LeBron from the newest W&K campaign?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Oh no, I get it—it’s Williamsburg LeBron, and he’s preparing for the move to Brooklyn.

    i thought only white people did sh*t like that?

    It would be awesome if Lebron gave him a sh*tler

    Sorry, that’s a white thing, lemme specify: when a dude passes out (ONLY WITH HIS SHOES ON), logic dictates you need to draw a hitler mustache on his face

    Oh and I absolitely insist on Omar reviewing Pineapple Express.

    TC what’s wrong with them kicking it? Looks like they’re just enjoying life to me.

    sanford, surely you are aware of how big a deal it is for us to win gold. all the players have stated as such. a couple hours of sleep a night is invalueble. maybe melo could put a lil more effort in on d. maybe lebron might be a lil more fresh and hit some free throws…

    White people are overrated.

    @Tarzan: How do you know this wasn’t on one of the off nights? Or at 9:00 p.m.? When I was in Vegas a few weeks back during training camp, all the US guys had turned in by 9:30 p.m. So were you there in Macau? Looking forward to hearing how you know so much and are able to make such concrete judgements…

    Tarzan, don’t get banned again, fool.

    with the time difference, they are probably partying 9 am our time. which would just mean they are getting ready for “work”. IN DA CLUB no less.

    LeBron loves Jay-z. Look at that scarf. Jay-z written all over it.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    I have a bunch of teabags in my kitchen cabinet, but none like that.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    Jay-Z invented scarfs.FACT

    Macau seems pretty awesome from the descriptions I’ve heard. Asians LOVE gambling, but so do i and I’m Polish.

    So they just clowned on a complete stranger along with his friends? Kinda cool, shows they were getting along with the locals and not acting like royalty.

    Going to the club is a bad thing? Damn! Back in my day I’d be up until 6am playing with 10 models in my hotel room – and then get up and get ready for game 7 of the finals! Go hard young fellas.

    Saudi Arabia played Macau once in an Asian qualifying game (for the 1998 World Cup). We won both games, 6-0 and 8-0, and we aren’t very good. Needless to say, several of their players passed out on the pitch.

  • Jostar

    Acutally, J Kidd was not catching his Zzzzzz…he was there at the club as well…everyone was there except Howard, Boozer and Redd…

  • Joey

    RV: Nah… just the guy passed out so melo was just making sexytime motions. Expats… I think they would’ve done that to anyone passed out in a club.

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    lang, what concrete judgments did i make? i asked if they should be sleeping instead. i didnt say it was real late, i didnt say it was a game night, i didnt say i was there. i simply asked if they should be sleeping instead. i dont know how you inferred that i know so much. blame greece.

    Tarzan… just read the Links, don’t write anything. Your embarrassing yourself. You sound like a really unlikeable and boring guy.

    ok Tarzan since when did you become team mom

    I was in the club that night when Reggie Martin US Warden in Macau brought Lebron James and Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade and all the players in! It was great to see them in person and up close this would never happen if I was in the states! All the players was having a good time and seeing the girls trying to get at them was like a movie!
