Eyebrows were raised when LeBron said he respected a fan who had the guts to run onto the MSG court just to shake his hand. After the kid spent a few hours in jail for the stunt, a report came out saying that he was going to be James’s personal guest at a Cavs home game.
This was obviously problematic in the eyes of many.
LeBron, though, has come out and denied the whole thing.
“It never happened,” James said about purchasing a ticket. “I don’t know where that rumor came from.” If Erskine showed up, James said he would not know anything about it.
“I wouldn’t know unless someone told me,” James said. “It happened so fast. I don’t remember what he looks like.”
Ah, good to see good old logic winning out in the end. As for the rest of you crazed fans out there: Let this be a lesson.
