LeBron on Fallon: Banana boat picture was Photoshopped (Video)


By now, we’ve all seen the ridiculous photo of Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, and LeBron James astride a banana boat while on vacation in the Bahamas last week.

Now, just like he denied Tiago Splitter at the rim in the 2013 NBA Finals, James is denying ever making an appearance on the plantain vessel.

Appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, the two-time NBA champion playfully rebuffed the notion that it was actually him in the infamous picture, claiming instead that he was Photoshopped in.

Fallon pulled out the glorious candid on the air and showed it to James asking, “This is not Photoshopped, right? That’s you right? On a giant banana.”

“Someone Photoshopped that,” LeBron replied. “That is not me. That’s Gabrielle Union, that’s Dwyane Wade, that’s Chris Paul. But that’s not me. I was back home in Akron, Ohio when this happened. We don’t have water like that back home.”

Sure, whatever you say LeBron. The 4-time MVP would then proceed to engage in a friendly game of Faceketball with the late night host.

After recently admitting that he gets nightmares about the Cavs’ Finals loss to the Warriors last June, it turns out that the absurd banana boat photograph, Photoshopped or not, will haunt James even further in all its ludicrous horror.
