NBA Superstar LeBron James posted a video of himself and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers taking the New York City subway, after their morning practice ahead of their game against the Knicks. And some other rider got upset and pushed LeBron’s phone away.
The subway rider who got angry at LeBron later posted a video saying he didn’t know who LeBron was. It turns out the man, James Michael Angelo, is a local real estate agent (and comedian), and he had a chance to tell his side of the story later on Monday.
“I noticed a bunch of tall guys getting in the train, but I was listening to U2 and I didn’t want to be filmed.” He thought it was a college basketball team. It was only when friends and fellow comedians started reaching out on social media that he realized what had happened. “To be honest with you, they got on and they completely squished me and he was really unaware of his space,” Angelo said.
The reason he didn’t look too happy when the lens swung toward him? He said James’s elbow nearly nailed him three times. Angelo said he asked James to watch where his elbows were going, to which one of James’s Cavs teammates retorted, “It’s cool!”
