Cleveland Cavaliers superstar forward LeBron James has enjoyed a long-term partnership with the fast food giant McDonald’s, appearing in numerous commercials over the years.

LeBron, while discussing his poor eating habits when he first entered the NBA, put his foot in his mouth Tuesday by telling reporters he regularly ate junk food from McD’s with no regard for his health.

James attempted to backtrack once he noticed the gaffe.

Per the NEOMG:

It happened today, when James was asked before shootaround for tonight’s road game against the Detroit Pistons how old he was when he became serious about lifting weights. […] James replied: “Umm, 24. I ate McDonald’s my first couple years in the NBA. I didn’t stretch. It didn’t matter. I was 18 and I could do whatever I wanted to.”

 

Perhaps sensing the mistake, James recovered when he was asked later when he last ate at McDonald’s.

 

“Every day. Every day. Every day,” James said, drawing laughter from reporters. “I had it this morning. Egg and sausage McMuffin. All day.”
