LeBron James Helps Himself to a Fan’s Fries in the Stands

LeBron James has taken heat recently for his casual attitude on the floor. Just a week ago, Joakim Noah called LeBron out for dancing during the game. It seems to me that opposing players aren’t happy with LeBron’s cavalier attitude, feeling that his team’s success doesn’t give him the right to play around as much as he does. That brings me to what happened on Sunday night. During Sunday’s game with the Thunder, LeBron’s momentum following a layup carried him into the stands behind the basket. While he was there, he decided to help himself to a few fries of the fan. Check out the video of LeBron James eating a fan’s food on Sunday night:

The haters will say this is another example of LeBron James taking things too lightly on the court. I’ll say the guy was just messing around and that it’s pretty clear there was no disrespect involved with his actions. The difference between him and Mark Sanchez of course is that LeBron wasn’t trying to hide his food craving. Why should he? The cameras catch everything anyway.

    Hahah, it was a fun moment. I was rooting for the Thunder hard and I enjoyed it. It’s just dumb to hate on him for something like this.

  • Ithica

    That’s excellent! A big name star having fun playing the game and entertaining the fans.
    What a concept!

  • Dannyboy

    I lol’d. A silly little reminder that sports stars are still human… wonder if the fry was any good? I bet the kid doused it in vinegar. :-P

  • HookemHorns

    Great moment and wish more “Superstars” could just go out and play the game they love and have fun without all the scrutiny.

    My take: Awesome fry steal my LeBron!

  • HookemHorns

    by LeBron! Sorry…LOL

  • Jeff J

    McDonalds is probably on the phone right now trying to get Lebron to do a new french fry commercial. the luckiest person in this story is that kid. He is probably the most popular kid in school today.

  • Jeff J

    JASON,

    STOP YELLING. You are just a jealous loser.

  • chazman

    This is awesome. Reminds me of the Mean Joe Green ad. LeBron should have given the kid his jersey after the game.

  • Hugh the Wizards Fan

    Although I cant stand the Cavs, (as they always eliminate my Wizards) I got to respect them. Lebron is bringing Fun to the NBA.. dont hate. All those front row people love it anyway when the ‘stars’ show them some attention. He is human, was there, the fries probably were smelling good and ‘calling him’, he had a few, give him a break. Now, if Lebron wanted to really ‘Take it to another Legend Level’ he should have found the kid after the game and hooked him up with a Shirt, headband, something for the kid to ‘brag’ about ..(Man.. I was at the game, and Lebron got some of my fries.. “no way!” ya man, look he gave me this phat jersey !!.) Make lil mans day and steal a home team fan at the same time.

    Anyone that thinks this was anything other that an FUN reaction with the fans is a total idiot. The Thunder and Cavs deserves to enjoy. The NBA is smart enough to know when something bad happened, and this was total fun. Good for LeBron and the Thunder fans!

  • Leon

    Lebron. So fresh, so clean. He’s playing a GAME. At least he still knows that, even if others have forgotten how fun basketball can be. Lebron will be a champion soon, and all this talk will end.

  • blinky

    i’m not surprised NBA fans think this is entertaining. no one i know with a college education or a job watches the NBA.

  • John

    It’s moments like this that, even for a few moments, take you away from the corporate BS of pro-sports and make you appreciate the fun that can be had. For those of you stating this is why LeBron will never win a championship, you need to really think about what you are saying before you speak. I’m a Knicks fan so this is not an I LOVE LEBRON story because I would actually like to see D Wade on the Knicks just as much, but LeBron has carried this franchise from the bottom of the league to one of the top-tier franchises in the NBA. What else could you ask of him? The team surrounding him is not exactly the most consistent group of guys in the league. LeBron was having fun with this and it’s great to see. More players in professional sports need to have fun. If Kobe did this people would eat it up and think it was so cool and sweet. Why is it any different for any player in the league? I don’t care what player does it its a great moment for the fan that it happened to. And thats what sports should be about. Making fans happy.

    blinky- your comment does not deserve a response but I will give you one anyway to help you get your jollies off because this is probably as close to real conversation as you have in your life. I happen to have a college degree and a job, as do a million other people who watch the NBA. Grow up dude. And if it bothers you that much, maybe you should be commenting on the business and politics section since your so much better than everyone else.

    I think that Lebron needs to stop. His cockiness will not win him a Ring. I just think that his team suck even though he is a good ball player don’t get me wrong but his team overall sucks. Its like Lebron is the whole team and they just relay so much on him I hate to see if he get injured and cannot play then he coach or teammates wouldn’t know what to do
